Thomas Harley was the man who created Berrington, purchasing the Estate in 1775 and commissioning Capability Brown to lay out the park and Henry Holland to design the house in the Neo-Classical style. His second daughter married the son of Admiral Lord Rodney and on Harley’s death in 1804, Berrington passed to the Rodney family who lived there for the next 95 years.
