Eastbach Temple, a palladian-style folly was built on a hillside, in the grounds of Grade II listed Eastbach Court in English Bicknor, Gloucestershire, England. The stone was locally carved and quarried in the Forest of Dean and the full construction covers 775 square feet. In its grand stature, the temple structure was designed for the owner as a poultry house.
Our team of conservation experts at ByrneLooby in London, advised on the structural engineering aspects of the restoration of this building. The challenge being to be true to the spirit of an original full size Greek Temple whilst ensuring stability to modern standards and with less "monumental" construction methods. The Eastbach Temple project caught the imagination of financial journalists and has featured in the Financial Times, The Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph and even, the New York Times.
