Queen Anne's Summerhouse

I've just spent a few days at Queen Anne's Summerhouse on the Shuttleworth Estate in Bedfordshire. The name is a little misleading since Queen Anne never came near the place, but the name seems to be connected to Samuel Ongley (the probable builder ) being knighted by her. Also as you can see, it's a fairly hefty piece of masonry and nothing like a summerhouse!
