The Ashton Memorial in Williamson Park, Lancaster, Lancashire, built between 1907 and 1909 by millionaire industrialist Lord Ashton in memory of his second wife, Jessy, at a cost of over £80,000. Have seen this folly many  times from the M6 popping up through the trees and decided it was time to take a closer look.

Lancaster also has a memorial to Queen Victoria which was also rather grand.
