Birr Castle Demesne:  Views from the Benches
Sherwood Harrington

 "Bench" 15:  Near the display pavilion by the great telescope.

The "bench" is a chair I pulled out of the pavilion.  While there is no permanent bench here, the spot affords one of my favourite views of the great telescope and its environs.

The view.
