The Temple of Victory

TheTemple_MG_5187

Apparently, the local legend says the hill in Allerton Castle park that ‘The Temple of Victory’ stands on is the one mentioned in the nursery rhyme “The Grand Old Duke of York”.  Prince Frederick, the Duke of York, owned ‘Allerton Castle’ during the 18th Century.

  1. Nice photo! I seem to have about fifty of the darn thing as it looms at you from all directions. I surveyed the estate the other year and I should be back out there soon. There are some really nice garden seats and bridges up there too, all a bit worse for wear though.
