SP9310 : A glimpse of the Summerhouse, Tring Park

A glimpse of the Summerhouse, Tring Park
A glimpse of the Summerhouse, Tring Park
This little monument is known as the Summerhouse, but is really just an artistic little folly in the classical style.
Unfortunately any close-up of this little monument in the woods above Tring Park would show the mindless graffiti currently disfiguring it. Once it has been removed I'll try to get a decent detail shot - before the morons strike again.
[Update: June '06] Nigel & Cathy Cox have now got a summery cleaned up image (see SP9310 : Tring Park: The Summerhouse)
Tring Park :: SP9210
Tring Park is the former grounds of The Mansion in Tring, which has had several owners including Sir William Gore, Lord Mayor of London; Sir Drummond Smith, a London banker and from 1823 William Kay, a Manchester textile magnate. In 1872 Lionel de Rothschild, who had been leasing it since 1838, bought it as a wedding present for his son, Nathaniel who later founded the famous Zoological Museum that still survives next door to the mansion and is now part of the Natural History Museum.
The park was laid out in the style of Capability Brown during Drummond Smith's tenancy. The park is now owned by Dacorum Borough Council and has been maintained by the Woodland Trust since 1993 LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link
