Warwick Castle is one of the finest medieval castles in England. When Lancelot (Capability) Brown, the popular landscape gardener, rearranged the layout to create a better view for the inhabitants of the castle, Brown created a smooth flow of land down to the River Avon and beautiful rolling fields beyond. The then occupants of the castle did not want to have their view spoiled by peasant tenant farmers and so large tracts of land were landscaped purely for the owner’s aesthetic appreciation.
The conservatory became a central focal point within the Rose Garden, incorporated into the design were the urns. Demolished to make way for a tennis court in the early 20th century, the drawings were preserved and it was from these drawings that Haddonstone was able to recreate the urn.
