Compton Verney Chapel
Compton Verney Chapel is part of the ‘Capability’ Brown-designed landscape of 120 acres surrounding Compton Verney art gallery and the buildings and structures in that landscape. The mansion at Compton Verney was remodelled in the 1760s by Robert Adam, who in turn introduced ‘Capability’ Brown to the site. From 1768, Brown transformed the landscape creating sharply defined lakes, bridges, tree belts, carriage drives, paths, vistas and garden buildings. A key element of this was his Grade I-listed Chapel (1776-9), one of the very few buildings known to have been designed by Brown.
