Garden Cottage, Polesden Lacey

Near Great Bookham, Surrey


This chimney on the Garden Cottage, on the estate of Polesden Lacey in Surrey, looks particularly playful and picturesque. This sort of quaintness derives from old ideas of rural cottages, perhaps via the rustic follies of Le Petit Trianon at Versailles.
