Description

Painted by Thomas Hornor 1815

This view from Llyn Mawr dam, looking south, shows Paxton's family about to set sail across the lake with their picnic basket packed.

The accompanying book states:
The path seen on the left leads through a shady walk that is constructed in an agreeable line by the margin of the large lake, which when seen from the mansion is contemplated not only as a pleasing object in itself, but as the means of multiplying and varying the beautiful views around it…..

The enjoyment of its navigation present a pleasing and rather rare addition to the range of rural amusements.
