Caption

A group of visitors can be seen admiring the spectacular water feature, the ‘Cascade’, which was created in 1745. Viscount Tyrconnel must have had it painted by Smith of Derby soon afterwards. Smith revelled in such unusual landscape features, and may well have been attracted to Belton by the reputation of these 'awful' cascades. The picture was recorded in the Chapel Drawing Room after his death, but seems to have been removed by his widow. Tyrconnel also had the picture engraved by Vivares in 1749 and had framed prints sent to all his relatives.
