Studley Weir

Date: c1910

The Water Garden at Studley Royal was created by John Aislabie in 1718 and later expanded by his son, William. It is one of the best surviving examples of a Georgian Water Garden in England. Inspired by the work of the great French landscape gardeners, the two gifted amateurs created the Water Garden with its formal, geometric design and extraordinary vistas. The Cascade, which leads from the canal to the lake, was constructed in 1719. Flanking it are rusticated columns with ball finials and two fishing pavilions added in 1727. The view is from the east side of the lake. .
