It is in the town of Corsham, 3 miles (5 km) west of Chippenham, Wiltshire. The manor house, purchased by Paul Methuen in 1745 to house his extensive art collection, was revised numerous times, including three major extensions constructed between 1749 and 1849. Landscape designer and architect Lancelot "Capability" Brown designed the park and a house expansion, followed by architects John Nash and Thomas Bellamy with mixed successes. In his work on the grounds, Brown retained the great entrance avenue and designed a long haha, gothic bathhouse, and large lake, which was removed by Brown’s successor, Humprey Repton, who formed his long working relationship with Nash at Corsham Court. They laid out avenues and planted the specimen trees, including American oaks, Quercus coccineus and Q. phellos, and the magnificent Oriental Plane. Some of the scenes from Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon were filmed at Corsham Court. The grounds also incorporate a folly ruin, built by Nash c. 1797, incorporating some medieval stonework. The estate is privately owned today by James Methuen Cambell, the eighth generation of the Methuen family. Download PDF Map of This Tour - ->
