Shotover House Garden

A house and garden made in 1718 for a friend of two famous empiricists, John Locke and Robert Boyle. The design is French-influenced, with a straignt canal. But it has the earliest example of a Gothic revival folly and an octagonal temple designed by William Kent in the 1730s.
