The two buildings imaged below are the creations of Sanderson Miller (1716 - 1780), an English architect and landscape designer who was one of the pioneers of "Gothic" taste in the middle C18. He was particularly known for his artificial ruins, which were intended to add a sense of historical depth and the picturesque to his clients' estates.

The buildings pictured below are not the damaged remnants of larger, intact buildings; they were deliberately designed and constructed to appear just as they do.
