A wooded footpath and a strange summerhouse

Old Warden is a very picturesque village lying adjacent to the Shuttleworth Estate in Bedfordshire. Mairi and I had lunch at the Shuttleworth Collection, a museum dedicated to old aeroplanes, and then took a footpath through the woods. The path takes you through part of the Shuttleworth Estate and contains a turreted building known as Queen Anne's summer house which is secreted in the woods. This was built in the 18th century as a folly and is now available for rent as a holiday cottage through the Landmark Trust. Behind the folly is a small pets graveyard with headstones engraved with doggy names.
I converted all of these pictures into monochrome, but have included some of the colour ones at the end for reference.
