Vast open spaces of majesty and splendour!
The folly's of one; scattered around like giants toys in a giants playroom -
both; take the eye and take ones breath!

'Eye-catchers' wait at every turn,
the octagonal lake straddled by a palladian bridge,
its elegance and beauty match that of the swans on the lake itself.
The peace and tranquillity radiate out along its many undulating drive-ways,
straight and seemingly infinite in length.

Take time to reflect in its lakes and streams,
loose yourself in that time,
marvel in all history surrounding you -
its history being our history,
a history of a great country
a history of England.
