While driving along the A19 north bound, I noticed an old stone tower hidden among the trees, I had not seen this strange building before, for two reasons…The first being I do not travel along this part of the A19 very often, and secondly the trees are without leaf at this time of year,
so revealing this little treasure.
I decided to take a closer look and was pleasantly surprised, "ney delighted" at what I had discovered. It transpired that it was not just a old tower in the trees but a science park, still under construction in parts, there were lakes with wildfowl a plenty.
Originally it had been a Gothic gate house built in 1764
It was a wonderful surprise for me to find this little gem of a place, so it was out with my new Nikon D80 and took a few pics.
It was purely by chance and so unexpected that I came upon this little place of beauty, and needless to say that I shall be returning to this special little park later in the summer.
This is the view of the large lake. ( I wonder if there are any fish in it.)
