The Round House, Calke Abbey
The Round House, Calke Abbey, taken 8 years ago
The Round House was used for mares in foal. It was built in this shape to prevent the horse from backing herself into a corner, and so make it difficult for the grooms to assist in the birth. (Words from sign at Calke Abbey)
