The Royal Crescent has a private park in front of it; when it was built there was farmland below the lawn, so they built a ha-ha to stop the animals getting onto the lawn. Mr Monkey looked over the railings around the park and decided that it's quite easy to tell where the ha-ha is now. Then he went to the end wall of the Royal Crescent to look at Nº 1, which is open to visitors. After a quick look he scampered across the bridge and in through the front door.
