The Dairy (521 Kb)

The DairyOn the northern side of the Triple Lime Alley, the park assumes the form of a forest tract with several winding lanes. Maria Feodorovna had the Dairy (Charles Cameron, 1782) built here, at the end of the stretch of forest. This was a small house in the guise of a simple Swiss cabin. Constructed from bricks, it was faced with unworked stone and covered with a thatched roof. Such buildings were common in the suburban parks of the European royalty before the French Revolution and represented a manifestation of sentimental moods. Here, distinguished guests were offered milk and other simple country fare of the type normally consumed by common people. A small byre for cows and sheep stood alongside the Dairy.
