Bulstrode Park

Previous - Next

Bulstrode Park, the Duke of Somerset's; and Denkam Lodge, the Seat of------Hamlet, Esq., the eminent goldsmith; are both partially seen from the road. The former has, within the last few years, lost many of its finest trees; but the latter stands nobly forward, supported by a phalanx of wood. Had the idea of supplying water by steam been proposed to the late Duke of Portland, he would probably have rendered Bulstrode as distinguished for its waterworks, as it was noted for its want of water. Denham Lodge, we were informed, is kept in good order; but we had not time to call.
