Just outside the village of Elston there is a rather attractive building.  I loved the look of the place from the moment I set eyes on it.  Pevsner (in The Buildings of England: Nottinghamshire) describes it as "one huge folly".  I see what he means but it makes me think of a doll's house for some reason.  Anyway, I have always thought of it as wonderful but now I have read about it I think it is marvellous!
