The father of landscape gardening, Lancelot “Capability” Brown left an unforgettable mark on the English landscape; such was his brilliance that his designs are often said to resemble nature itself! He spent more than a decade overseeing the design of the Ashburnham parkland and we learn from gardener Jay Ashworth how Brown worked his magic here. We also meet a volunteer who has found sanctuary and inspiration at Ashburnham Place during difficult times.Today a community of Christians live at Ashburnham Place and thousand of visitors also come on retreat. One individual who was fortunate enough to grow up in the Capability Brown designed landscape was Richard Bickersteth. Richard tells how his father, a trainee vicar, came to inherit Ashburnham Place and how the Ashburnham Christian Trust came to be.
Dana Masters is originally from America but moved to Northern Ireland in 2008 after meeting her husband Andrew. They founded the Lagan Valley Vineyard Church along with another couple, Yvette and Mark Wilkinson.
Andrew looks after the vision and direction of the church and when Dana’s not leading the music at the church she is singing to thousands at music gigs in Ireland, UK and further afield.
