Buscot Park in Oxfordshire belongs to the National Trust and is still the seat of the Lords Farringdon.
Here one of the animistic mooring posts marking the landing stage on the great lake looms like a spirit guardian in a haunted landscape …
The park and gardens are a palimpsest of different periods and designs, starting with Loveden’s park and including a water garden by Harold Peto and the Four Seasons Garden designed by the present Lord Farringdon.
The lake itself was part of Loveden’s original layout, but the mooring posts are probably a later ornamentation.
