The Grotto, Painshill Park, Surrey
The many visitors’ descriptions in the 18th century, give the impression that the Grotto at Painshill was the finest of its type ever built. Built across two islands in the lake, it gave the appearance of a rocky cavern on the shore, being covered externally with limestone which was brought from quarries in Gloucestershire and the Bath area. The main chamber (40 feet square) is magnificent.
