In the 16th century the 1st Lord Burghley was a passionate gardener 
and employer of the Tradescants. One of his gardens, at Theobalds, 
was noted by diarists of the day as containing “divers conceits, 
obelisks of many materials and a lead pond which was pleasant 
for bathing in the summer, as well as Caesars heads contained 
in a circular building with a table made from ‘touchstone'”
