An Oriental Pagoda

Now for a folly at Cliveden in the Water Garden.

Seen a good few years ago on a rather dull day. The pagoda was originally made for the 1867 Paris Exposition Universelle, and brought to Cliveden by the owner in 1900. I understand that this has since been restored and painted to look as it would have done in its earlier days.

  1. The kind of place I’d have used for ‘tiggy off ground’ as a kid. Smiling at you, Sue!

  2. I’d be very happy if this suddenly appeared in my garden!

  3. That was where john Profumo lived, and had his famous scandalised parties. I suspect that pagoda has seen some ‘things’ over the years! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I imagine a lot of mischief happening there over the years!

  5. I’d love this in my garden but I think I need a bigger garden!

  6. Lovely rich colours among all the greenery!

  7. I’ve always liked pagoda’s not that I see them often. Beautifully captured 😀

  8. What a great find, Sue. With the way you e shown it partly hidden, I can imagine the pleasant surprise of it popping out of the bushes as I wander the gardens.
