The High Ride on the east side of the valley gives magnificent views of the Water Garden. The Octagon Tower was built in 1738. Nearby are the reconstructed remains of Aislabie's Kitchen, a romantic spot thought to be where food and drink was prepared for consumption by guests at the Octagon Tower.
That's all I can find Ian but as I said to Neil it was probably used mostly as a place to take the mistress for a bit of nookyin the middle of a romantic stroll around the gardens.
Very nice photo and autumn colours. Re your comments about the mistress I guess that does make it a folly. Regards Derek
Well let's face it what woman wouldn't be impressed with such an erection ;o)
OOooooo.... you still have autumn or fall over there Sam I see.
That's the first time I have seen the word Nookyin' on Panoramio. I always come here for the firsts

Only just J, the wind and wet since will have put paid to most of that colour now I would imagine so once again I was lucky to get what I did on that very productive outing.
bestest wishes, Sam :o)
