Took a stroll by what was at one time Britain’s largest man-made lake. Firstly went to the Cascade but sadly due to the lack of rain it was a bit of a dribble. We then went to look at the Roman ruins which were transferred from Northern Libya to Virginia Water in 1818.
To get from the car park and new visitor centre (not yet open) to the ruins and cascade involved some serious pushing by Kevin, but he will get over it.
We then wandered up to the Totem Pole, which was erected in 1958 to commemorate the founding of British Columbia in Canada, using a 600 year old Red Cedar tree. This was refurbished in 1985 and provided a fine backdrop while we ate our sandwiches.www.theroyallandscape.co.uk/gardens-and-landscape/virginia-water/
