Stourhead-The Grotto

Stourhead-The Grotto

View over the lake towards the bridge.

Inside the Grotto at Stourhead one finds the sleeping Ariadne and Pope's verses engraved at the edge of the pool:

Nymph of the Grot these sacred springs I keep, And to the murmur of these waters sleep; Ah! Spare my slumbers, gently tread the cave, And drink in silence, or in silence lave.
