Studley Water garden

Studley water garden on the Fountains Abbey Estate is a favourite place for an afternoon stroll. Here is a view of the Octagon Tower which is situated at one end of a path with the Temple of Fame in the middle and Anne Boleyn’s seat and surprise view at the other. The path is high up in the tree line and just below the Octagon Tower you can see the entrance to the Serpentine tunnel through which you gain access the tower and path to the other two view points. From Anne Boleyn’s Seat you have a spectacular view of the Abbey. See a map here of the estate.
