The Kymin is a a hill dominating the skyline above the town of Monmouth with far reaching views over many counties of England and Wales.
At the summit are two neo-classical monuments that are over 200 years old.
The Naval Temple
This was built to commemorate Lord Nelsons British naval fleets victory over Napoleon Bonaparte French fleet after a three month naval campaign between the two sides.
16 plaques adorn the structure - with the names of 16 admirals and their most famous victories.
The stone statue of Britannia holding a trident on top of the memorial has recently been replaced with a new one by master mason Philip Chatfield after the original disappeared in the 1860's.
The two paintings adorning the monument were commissioned from Laura V. Stevens of Decorworks.co.uk
This round tower was built as a meeting place for the local aristocracy.
In the upper part of the tower was a banqueting room and the roof provided a viewpoint and place for a powerful telescope
In the grounds a bowling green was laid down - and a series of walks / viewpoints were constructed in Beaulieu Grove
