Restoration Intern The Temple of Concord and Victory

18 July 2015

Originally it was known as the Grecian Temple and constructed to symbolise ‘The Birthplace of Liberty’.  Cobham identified Greece as the birthplace of European liberty and so built this temple, suitably in his Grecian Valley, to honour it.

In the late eighteenth century it was renamed the Temple of Concord and Victory to celebrate British success in the Seven Years War.
