About the Image
Needle's Eye is a Grade II listed building, a 14-metre (46 ft) pyramid-shaped structure located in Wentworth, South Yorkshire in northern England. It is one of several follies in and around Wentworth Woodhouse park, including Hoober Stand and Keppel's Column. The structure was designed by John Carr and constructed in the mid-late 18th century. It is believed to have been built in order to win a wager made by the second Marquess of Rockingham, who claimed he could "drive a coach and horses through an eye of a needle."
One side of Needle's Eye is heavily pockmarked, resembling musket ball holes. There have been allegations that the building may have been the site of an execution by firing squad, but there is no concrete evidence to support this claim.
