Beautiful autumnal colours. This recently restored weir allows the small lake by the Temple of British Worthies to overflow into the Octagon Lake. I saw a reference somewhere to this particular body of water being called the River Styx. The Shell Bridge is seen in the distance and is apparently on the programme of works bringing the gardens back to their original condition.
