Osterley Park

Osterley, Middlesex. Mon 3 Jun 2019



 

 The church is in Isleworth, close to hwere I went to school

 

 The drive to the house curves around a lake

 with waterlilies just coming to bloom.

 there are large fields with trees and grass (and more lakes out of sight)

 An old tree by the lake

 and the view of the house along the drive is part obscured by trees

 The stables are the oldest surviving buildings

 though parts of the old building were incorporated into Adams's design

 More buildings around the back of the stables

 and cows graze in the fields beyond.
     
   

 A heron stands in the lake

 

 but the house has two eagles

 and a rather fine ceiling

 The garden front has a smller but attractive double stairway to a rather fancy back door

 

 A bench in the garden

 

 and an orangery surrounded by flower beds in the grass

 

 There were a lot of different flowers out in the walled garden

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The Temple

 

 garden front

and another view of the Grade 1 listed house
