Views of Eaton Hall in Cheshire
"Erratum. - In the descriptions beneath the external views, the several points have been inadvertently transposed, so that: North, is named for West; South, is named for East; East, is named for North; and West, is named for South. This error, however, has been corrected in the text."
"Before the West front a large space is enclosed by a sunk fence, surmounted by a low stone wall. A raised Terrace adorns the East side of the House; from whence, sloping to an extensive piece of water, and intersected by walks, are the Flower Garden and Pleasure Grounds, which cover a space of fifty acres, and are ornamented on one side by a Gothic Conservatory, and on the other by an octagonal Temple."
