Doric Column Folly

The Doric columns in a black and white photo...

Nestled away in the Harlow Carr woods are the Six Doric Columns from the Cheltenham Spa Concert hall in Harrogate originally. These were donated in the 1960's from the Yorkshire Archaeology society. Apparently it was the main entrance to Harlow Carr before.

Giant tree's grow around the columns and the stone lions. Two Aslan like felines, from the lion, witch, and the wardrobe.....One lion was severely weathered on the face.

It was tucked in a glade at the far end of the woods.We had previously not seen them somehow.The sun was shining and they were illuminated six giants, with the two lions keeping guard at the base.

The trees grew around them creating a folly, amongst the Green and shady glade..
