Transcript of Stourhead plan and features

The Pantheon Built by Henry Flitcroft in 1753-4. Originally referred to as the 'Temple of Hercules'. Approximate location of the Apollo Belvedere Location of the Turkish Tent The Turkish tent was removed by Richard Colt Hoare, but from Mrs. Lybbe Powys' description it would have closely resembled the restored Painshill version shown below. The Grotto Probably based on Ovid's myth of Daphne and Peneus Temple of Apollo Built in 1765, each of the 11 niches were originally occupied by John Cheere statues that are now lost or which have been placed elsewhere Stourhead House Built 1725 to a design created by Colen Campbell River Gods and Neptune Before the dam raised the water level a reclining river god was housed in a rocky niche beneath the Temple of Flora and next to Paradise Well, one of he six springs that feeds the River Stour. Later Henry Hoare installed a plinth that bore a now lost statue of Neptune in his carriage drawn by four seahorses. The Gothic Cottage Added in the 1770s by Henry Hoare The Rock Arch According to Charlesworth this point in the 'circuit walk' is analogous to the choice of Hercules painting in the main house. Temple of Flora Built 1744, this originally housed the Livia Augusta as Ceres statue now in the Pantheon Landscape with Aeneas at Delos Woodbridge believes this inspired Henry Hoare to site the Temple of Ceres, the bridge and the Pantheon. There is, however, no evidence that he ever saw the painting. Gothic Summerhouse Removed by Richard Colt Hoare, the only remaining images are from sketches carried out by Bampfield (see below) Chinese bridge Open Temple Removed by Richard Colt Hoare, though there is an extant sketch produced by FM Piper (1779). It seems to have resembled the extant Open Temple at Bramham, Yorks. The Hermitage c.1770s, later removed by Richard Colt Hoare. This structure was also sketched by FM Piper in 1779 and may have resembled the extant Hermitage at Painshill (see below). Bristol High Cross Medieval monument that once stood in Bristol. It was acquired by Henry Hoare in 1764 and transferred to its current position in Stourhead. Chinese Parasol Originally stood where current village entrance to gardens is located Chinese Alcove Approximate location of the statue of Diana bought as part of a pair with the Apollo Belvedere The Obelisk First erected in 1746 to close the fir walk, replaced in 1839 with Bath stone.
