Fenstanton Capability Brown 300 Festival

2016 marks the 300 anniversary of the birth of Capability Brown. Fenstanton and Hilton have strong connections as he was Lord of the Manor for a while and both he and some of his family are buried here. Both villages are planning to take part in the extensive national year long celebrations.
