In 1863 Theophilus Smith made a series of small photographs of rocks, caverns other picturesque features of the Wortley area, and it was around these that grew idea of John Holland's book Wharnecliffe, Wortley and the Valley of the Don, published in 1864. The problems posed by `the almost ceaseless motion of the trees in situation so elevated' is noted, and this was no doubt very detrimental to photography in the days of long exposures.
Owing to the success of the `Wortley' volume ,Holland wrote Sheffield and its Neighbourhood, published in 1865, and again Theophilus Smith provided local views of subjects referred to.

I didn't know what it was, just it wasn't Weston Park. Thanks Steve.

It's not Weston Park, it is Wortley Hall.
