Farther on in the Italian walk, at 17, we have the front view of the span-roofed green-house fig. 51.; and a little to the left, at 18, the view of the French parterre fig. 52. Proceeding towards the house, a view of a handsome weeping ash (20) is obtained from the point 19; and, at the farther extremity of the walk, the vases placed at 1, 2, 3 on the plan have an excellent effect, backed by the marginal plantation of evergreens. Leaving the walk at 19, and passing the weeping ash at 20, if we advance on the lawn to 21, and look towards the south, we have the pollard vista fig. 53.; and, changing the position to 22, we have the view of the rock work, statue of Fame, &c., shown in fig. 54.
