Detail of stonework on Pirton Castle
Precisely cut ashlar stone on the front of Pirton Castle which was designed by James Wyatt in 1801. Pirton Castle is one of three outer 'eyecatchers', or follies, which are situated at a distance from the home of the 6th Earl of Coventry at Croome Court. The idea being to impress upon visitors that his park was older than it really was. In 2009, the National Trust acquired Pirton Castle and undertook restoration.
