It looks like something out of a fairytale.

But this sparkling 18th century crystal grotto is very much a reality - and has today been unveiled after a one-year restoration project.

Writer, photographer and broadcaster Lady Lucinda Lambton, who has been described as a 'crusader' for the nation's architectural heritage, placed the last crystal in the grotto's stalactite mineral decoration.
