Beside a still pond in the middle of fairly dense Forest woodland is what looks at first like a 'staircase to nowhere.' This is the "Observatory" that was created by Bruce Alan. There are some intriguing ideas embedded in it. Reminiscent of an under-stairs 'Glory Hole' of a dark cupboard, or perhaps somewhere underground, is a small room beneath the flight of stairs. The stairs themselves lead up to a landing, in the light and airy space of midway to the treetops.
