Garden Bathing in Carved Granite

Carved granite bath in garden. (With people posed behind of course).

 

A beautifully atmospheric place with a fascinating history. Having survived abandonment and use as a test facility for a secret tank weapon, it is now being sympathetically stabilised and restored to a degree where the public may visit, but the atmospheric, mysterious feel is not eroded.
