Stowe (2)

After lunch, I wandered the grounds.

Past the Grenville Column, with a statue of Heroic Poetry:-

The Temple of Ancient Virtue by Kent (1736):-

The Temple of British Worthies, also by Kent, with busts of British heroes, including King Alfred, the Black Prince and William III:-

The Palladian Bridge, thought to be by Gibbs:-

The Gothic Temple, dedicated to ‘the Liberty of our Ancestors:-

It was all part of the culture wars.
