2017-05-23 (Day 143) Dunmore Pineapple

The Dunmore Pineapple was built in 1761 by the fourth Earl of Dunmore. It is believed that this may reflect his recent return from the Americas, where the Pineapple was a symbol of welcome.

Today, it sits in an attractive and peaceful walled garden, where for the cost of a small voluntary donation you can sit and enjoy the birdsong and watch the river idly flow past.

A very pretty place.
