Painswick Rococo Garden - mysterious chamber
Painswick Rococo Garden - mysterious chamber
At one corner of a small lake is a small domed, partly subterranean chamber that one can walk into. This is the view inside. Despite the lack of any interpretation whatsoever, I am reasonably sure his probably housed a hydraulic ram that was fed through the pipe with a valve. The pumped water probably left through the small pipe towards bottom right and the discharge through the spill valve would be caught in the round pit and flow into the lake to the right. It's a shame that it's gone - I like hydraulic rams as they are elegantly effective and make a pleasing noise. If anybody knows the truth about this chamber I would be delighted to hear from them.
