Great Conservatory, Syon Park, Brentford
Great Conservatory, Syon Park, Brentford, taken 6 years ago
'The crowning glory of Syon Park's gardens is the Great Conservatory. The 3rd Duke of Northumberland commissioned Charles Fowler to build a new conservatory in 1826, the first of its kind to be built out of gunmetal, Bath stone and glass. It was originally designed to act as a show house for the Duke's exotic plants and inspired Joseph Paxton in his designs for the Crystal Palace.'

Seen during the 'Enchanted Woodland' event of 2010; the middle weekend of three. The lighting, on the conservatory, is ever changing, with the colours reflected by the frozen lake.
