6/144 Grotto Underpass

Underpass for path to Temple of Apollo (q.v.) below Zeals Road.
1760-65, for Henry Hoare. Curving tunnel with rustic rockwork
portals with large voussoirs, path continues up hill through
cutting with a single rockwork arch over. Probably contemporary
with the Rockwork bridge over the Zeals road (q.v.), being part of
the same route to the Temple of Apollo.
(K. Woodbridge, The Stourhead Landscape, 1982)
