photoblog image A Georgian Folly

A Georgian Folly

 

High on a rocky outcrop above Studley Royal Water Gardens in an 18th century octagonal tower, built as a garden folly for the then owner of the estate. Access to the tower is via a serpentine tunnel that starts at the waterside.

 

Also along the waterside benches are placed to allow the weary visitor palces to sit and enjoy the views around the agrdens.
