The restoration of this picturesque valley is a significant landscape with an ice house and also a limekiln. While part of the grotto had been lost, machinery in the pumphouse required conservation, the remaining pools were leaking with their banks eroding. Key vistas in the valley were also completely obscured by tree growth. They were able to carefully remove trees and restore the original tree species, which was key to the valley’s revival and restore this almost forgotten valley.
