Deborah Hill's 'Mussenden Temple A5 Print' is a tribute to one of Northern Ireland's most picturesque and historically significant landmarks. Perched on the cliffs above Downhill Strand in County Londonderry, the Mussenden Temple is a small, circular building that offers stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding landscape. Built in 1785 as part of the Downhill Demesne, the temple was originally constructed as a library, inspired by the Temple of Vesta in Rome. It was commissioned by Frederick, 4th Earl of Bristol, known as the 'Earl-Bishop,' in memory of his niece Frideswide Mussenden, for whom the temple is named.

This print captures the essence of the temple's history, including its unique architectural design and the dramatic landscape it overlooks. Over the years, coastal erosion brought the temple ever closer to the edge of the cliff, leading to stabilisation work by The National Trust in 1997 to preserve this historic structure. The Temple, now part of the National Trust's Mussenden Temple and Downhill Demesne, is open to the public, offering breathtaking views and a glimpse into the area's rich history.
