Eventually you will come to the Semi-Circle, 18th century parkland feature. George London had a plan to borrow views of the surrounding countryside on a grand scale from a feature in the park he called the Semi-Circle. He found a naturally raised area and had trees planted in a series of rays from a base point, resembling a school protractor.
