Temple of Heroes on Lake Windermere
Click image for larger version.
During ‘Lock Down' I decided to revisit my old photos (trip to the loft, and engagement with many scary spiders involved!) I found one which I liked the look and composition of but had no idea what the building was.
So with some help from a ‘I Love the Lake District' on Facebook I found out that it is in fact called the Temple of Heroes and is a tribute to four British naval admirals Duncan, Nelson, Howe and St Vincent, whose names are inscribed on tablets set in its walls and it sits in the grounds of Storrs Hall. So not only did I find something to paint, I learned something at the same time.
