Parlington Hall :: Stereo photos :: Fountain from Dining Room

The Gardens from the Dining Room

The main fountain again, but this time the Cedar of Lebanon is in the frame on the left, the earliest picture of this magnificent tree, and it is already a mature specimen. A conversation some years back with an expert from the Forestry Commission as to the tree's age, he thought it to be about two hundred years old, this would put the planting to about the beginning of the nineteenth century, some sixty years before this photograph, I think the maturity of the cedar tells a different story, it looks to be a good centegenarian in 1860 to me.

The fountain is working in this photograph, but the pressure seems fairly low, no information on how the pressure was achieved has come to light, although there used to be a water tower in one of the stallion pens, near the Triumphal Arch, some underground pipework has been discovered leading to the Hall so perhaps another branch pipe fed the fountain, albeit a rather profligate use of water!

Towards the centre distance in the Deer Park beyond the hidden Dark Arch and separated by the sunk fence is a large pole; May Pole perhaps and beyond this is a white tent like shape, both these items lend some weight to the already known use of the Deer Park as a recreation area.
