Alton Towers historic gardens
Alton Towers' gardens were begun, circa 1814, by the eccentric 15th Earl of Shrewsbury. Humphry Repton's and J. C. Loudon were involved in the designs but the aerial tramway (from where the picture was taken) has come much later with the development of an adventure park.
