Gatton Park is a beautiful historic parkland designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown with Edwardian gardens in Reigate, Surrey. The park is approximately 600 acres in size. Of that 600, 260 of them are managed by The Gatton Trust, the other 340 acres are now owned by The National Trust. The park is most famous for the work that was carried out between 1762 and 1766 by the famous English landscape designer Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. Brown was enlisted to work on the park by Sir James Colebrooke who purchased Gatton in 1751. Brown swept away the formal landscape that had been there and replaced it with informal naturalistic plantings which accentuated the rolling landscape of the park.

A key part of Browns design for Gatton was a series of ponds which culminated in the main lake.
