Details

STOURTON WITH GASPER STOURHEAD GARDENS ST 73 SE (east side) 6/149 Small grotto below Temple of Flora GV II Grotto. 1744 by Henry Flitcroft. Rustic limestone segmental arched recess, formerly part of a larger design featuring a statue of a River God by Thomas Manning, bought in 1743, set in the recess above a cascade. Flitcroft's design pre-dated the raising of the water level to form the lake; the cascade was submerged and the statue presumably removed c1754. This, together with the Temple of Flora (q.v.) was Henry Hoare's first contribution to the gardens. (K. Woodbridge, The Stourhead Landscape, 1982)
