Downhill Beach.

Downhill Beach.
This picture shows the beach [ also known as Benone Strand ] looking down from the Mussenden Temple. This building, described as a folly inspired by the Tivoli Temple of Vesta, is situated within Downhill Castle's precinct. Perched on the top of a 120-foot cliff, Mussenden Temple was built in 1783 by the Bishop of Derry as a summer library. He constructed it in honour of his married cousin, Frideswide Mussenden, with whom, it is said, he was infatuated. Frideswide, however, died, aged 22. before it was completed.

It is now in the National Trust's care.
