Downton Castle

Not open to the public. Richard Payne Knight's house and garden survive in good condition. Repton wrote that 'When I compare the picturesque scenery of Downton Vale with the meagre efforts of art which are attributed to the school of Brown, I cannot wonder at the enthusiastic abhorrence which the author of "The Landscape" expresses for modern gardening'. See comments by Humphry Repton.
