Lake at Langley Park
Lake at Langley Park
Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown is thought to have created the long, serpentine lake for the 4th Duke of Marlborough in the 1760s.

While Brown was working at Blenheim Palace, he was asked by the 4th Duke of Marlborough to make a plan for improvements at Langley Park.

But Brown’s full plan for the family’s hunting lodge has not survived although his accounting book reveals that his bill for the work was £2810 - worth nearly £5 million in today's money.

The lake was developed from an existing brook.
