Petworth in West Sussex has become the destination town in the UK for antique 

buyers looking for more than just traditional brown furniture. On the edge of 

the town stands a vast late 17th-century mansion set in a sprawling verdant 

park, landscaped by 'Capability' Brown and immortalised in Turner's paintings. 

The house features fascinating servants quarters with a state of the art 

Victorian kitchen. The house is synonymous with the name Grinling Gibbons 17thc 

Dutch carver to Charles 1 known as the King's carver.

 The majestic 700-acre park is internationally important as one of the finest unspoilt examples of an English landscape park designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. It is also home to the largest and oldest herd of fallow deer in England.The ancient records of Petworth reveal many centuries of land tenure, even mentioning William, 8th Baron de Percy (1193-1245), in connection with the 'new small park in which is his cunegeria' (rabbit warren).'Capability' Brown worked at Petworth for the 2nd Earl of Egremont from 1751 to 1764. His greatest achievement was said to be the serpentine lake, created by damming a series of small ponds. The lake is still fed by a mile of 18th-century underground brick culverts which tap the springs at the base of the western hills in the park.
