"A view of the grounds and beyond at Cannon Hall, painted late 2020. Originally the home of the Spencer and later the Spencer-Stanhope family, the gardens were designed by a lesser-known contemporary of Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, Richard Woods.⠀
As I was walking through the park on that autumn morning, I wondered how many raucous parties had spilled out onto the lawns, and who amongst the Georgian social 'elite' had spent their leisure time at the house back in its heyday."
