Darnley Mausolem, Cobham

I have decided to add another dimension to the blog and write little blurbs on good places to take Couscous for a walk. I will start with where we went today – the Cobham Mausolem. It was recently restored and then acquired by the National Trust. It was designed by James Wyatt for the Darnley family in the late 18th century but never used for burials.

Photos of the mausoleum pre, post and during restoration can be found here.

More historical detail can be found here.

It’s easy to find. Drive along Lodge Lane and just before the bend is a carpark. The path starts by the thatched house and you walk straight until you get to it.
