View of Alton Towers terraced gardens showing the colonnade, a fountain, scalloped walls, and, in the distance, the Choragic Monument modeled after that of Lysicrates, which houses the bust of Charles, 15th Earl of Shrewsbury. The scenery is described as follows by the author:
On the extreme right a portion of the Scollop Walk runs up to the conservatories, terminated by a flight of steps, and bordered in turn by an ornamental cupola and a balustrade surmounted with flowers in vases. Beneath the walls are numerous flower beds, from which rise stone columns crowned with vases, and divided by the tapering cypress. […] A fountain throws up its clear stream from the midst of a floral circle in front of an alcove or summer-house, quite beneath a turfy bank which forms part of the terrace above it.
