Great Conservatory, Syon Park, Brentford
Great Conservatory, Syon Park, Brentford
'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.
