  Shell House Talks - Gallery - Painswick Rococo Garden - nr. Stroud - Gloucestershire  
     
 

Created from 1740 by Charles Hyett to incorporate many fantasy eye-catchers: the Eagle and Pigeon House, an Exedra, a Gothic Red House and a very early niche grotto and plunge pool with a statue of Pan. It is a rare example in Britain of a complete Rococo-style garden. Painted in 1748 by Thomas Robins.
