There is a new water feature called the Faux Fall by artist and sculptor David Harber, commissioned in 2007 by the present Lord Faringdon. It consists of a series of highly polished steel vertical panels in graduated form and height over which water is pumped and which when viewed from across the the opposite descending stairway to the Four Seasons Walled garden appears like a cascade.
This is a lovely place to visit.Having walked up to the main house and found yourself looking across the back lawns a stunning anglo- Italianate box edged walk leads you down to a sublime view of an enormous lake,the view tightly constrained by the narrowness of the avenue and height of trees. Rooms occur within the Avenue/walk with colonnades of Juniper and sleepy water features and waterway tempting you down to the lake. From there the view ..the new walks..you are in an enchanted land ! Go visit ! One might suggest it is an amalgam of Humphrey Repton with Renaissance Italy..maybe !
