EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the remarkable structure known as "Jack the Treacle Eater" located in Somerset's Barwick Park Estate. Built around 1775, this architectural folly stands tall with a rough rubble arch that reaches approximately 5 meters in height. Atop this arch sits a circular tower crafted from cut and squared stone, adorned with a battlemented parapet and crowned by a conical stone roof. The pinnacle of the tower is graced by an exquisite lead statuette depicting winged Mercury. A sense of mystery surrounds Jack the Treacle Eater, as its blocked doorway reveals only glimpses of an upper portion of a rugged stairway leading to it. Legend has it that Jack was once a local runner entrusted with delivering family messages all the way to London. Rumor has it that he trained for his arduous journeys by consuming treacle. In this enchanting photograph captured by Brian Haigh, one cannot help but be captivated by the timeless beauty and intricate craftsmanship displayed in every detail of Jack the Treacle Eater. This listed historical landmark adds both charm and character to its surrounding garden setting, making it an irresistible subject for photographers and history enthusiasts alike.
