Description:Cherub statue in the gardens of Alton Towers. The gardens were created by the 15th Earl of Shrewsbury between about 1810 and 1827.

The building of Alton Towers (the house and estate) took place between 1810 and 1852, and was a combination of eight notable architects' ideas. James Wyatt was the original designer and Pugin, the last. The buildings are part of the estate created by the fifteenth and sixteenth earls of Shrewsbury, the Talbot family.
Alton Towers estate has for several decades been one of the country's largest amusement parks, attracting visitors to its many rides, attractions and annual events
