You pass by the Temple of the Four Winds and then make your way through the rolling Howardian Hills, pass New River Bridge and follow the track up to the Mausoleum which rises dramatically from the hilltop.

You then make your way inside the Italian inspired chapel with soaring stone pillars leading the eye to the impressive carved dome ceiling. Take in the 360 degree views of the surrounding farm and woodland, before entering the vaults below.
