This unusual, almost eccentric garden gate separated a private garden from a path to an equally eccentric, make that fantastic public park designed by Antonio Gaudi. It was a wonderful thing that Goudi was allowed to let the product his imagination become reality. Some of the constructions are like drawings drawn in concrete and stone. Everyone who appreciates human created outdoor space should experience this park…

The sculpture in the grotto is of the nymph Egeria of whom Byron wrote;
Egeria! sweet creation of some heart
Which found no mortal resting-place so fair
As thine ideal breast; whate’er thou art
Or wert, — a young Aurora of the air,
The nympholepsy of some fond despair;
Or, it might be, a beauty of the earth,
Who found a more than common votary there
Too much adoring; whatsoe’er thy birth,
Thou wert a beautiful thought, and softly bodied forth.

Tis a funny thing all the statues in this wonderful park have their noses damaged! Every darned conk in the park is dinged, damaged, nothing else just the noses… very strange.

Brougton Tower dates from the eleventh century and was added to from time to time over the next eight hundred years. Most recently the whole building was divided up turned into apartments. In the nineteen fifties it was a school that I was fortunate enough to attend. Gardening botany and long country walks were an unusual part of the curriculum that have never been forgotten!
Architectural details have long fascinated me windows, door ways, finials, architraves and this case the theme of steps, which has continued for some time now. Wherever I travel I record these things as I see them, at one point I had it in mind to produce a series drawings from the hundred photos taken but now as I look over them and decide which appeal to me most I feel that they have taken on a significance of their own. It is a case of the ordinary becoming extraordinary!

While most town centres have a memorial this obelisk in the market square was erected to celebrate the jubilee of King George III, the mad one?
