This bizarre structure, in the shape of a pineapple, was built in 1761 as a folly to enjoy the fantastic views.

Extensive glasshouses and pineapple pits once grew a variety of exotic fruit and vegetables within these walls.

Ongoing research, survey and repair work continues on the walls and is revealing a great deal of information for future consideration.

Enjoy a peaceful walk around the former curling and dipping pool and surrounding woodland.
