Witley Court

The ruined country house and gardens of Witley Court in Worcestershire. English Heritage are restoring the gardens including the wonderful Perseus and Andromeda fountain, which springs into life every hour. On a beautiful spring day its a wonderfully peaceful and attractive place to spend an afternoon.

Walking around its difficult not to admire the architects, designers, builders, workmen and gardeners who created and maintained this place. Though the sheer excess and expenditure of the often dissolute, feckless drones who inhabited it, creates a different impression.
