By end of C17th house @ #Badminton #Gloucestershire was centre of vast formal landscape with avenues radiating out across countryside & formal garden with #parterres #topiary #terraces #walks & #fountains near house. #HenryWise (1653–1738), royal gardener, influenced design. 3rd Duke of Beaufort (1707–1745) was responsible for a major remodelling of estate at Badminton, including both house & landscape. He began to deformalise garden, advised by #CharlesBridgeman (1690–1738). #FrancisSmith of Warwick was commissioned to undertake work on house. After 3rd Duke's death, his brother, 4th Duke of Beaufort (1709-1756) continued to remodel Badminton, employing architect #WilliamKent (c.1685–1748) who dramatically simplified gardens & designed Worcester Lodge. #ThomasWright designed various garden buildings. By 1768 park had more or less reached its present form, although Dorothy Stroud, leading authority on #CapabilityBrown stated in her 1975 book that Brown created an “updated ground plan of the house, proposing slight internal changes”, following Kent's landscaping. Badminton remains in Beaufort family. Today it has a beautiful deer park which hosts world famous #BadmintonHorseTrials. Game of Badminton was invented in house in 1863.
