This is a short walk we did when visiting Wimpole Park, a National Trust property in Cambridgeshire.
From the car park we walked down to the stable block. This was designed by H. E. Kendall and constructed in 1852.
We then walked around the front of the house, having already visited the formal and walled gardens.
The folly off in the distance.
Walking across the wooden, Chinese Bridge.
Walking up Johnson's Hill.
These gothic ruins, also known as sham ruins, were made purposefully to create a spectacular view from the Hall in 1768.
The folly is just as stunning close up and stands as a unique portrayal of 18th-century style and fashion.
