Naval Temple at the Kymin, Monmouth, Wales is a symbol of Britain’s naval supremacy at the height of the British Empire.
At a time when Britannia ruled the waves and Admiral Nelson was at the height of his career following his victory at the Battle of the Nile, the gentlemen of the Kymin Club and other local citizens were filled with national pride.
The Naval Temple was built by public subscription in 1800 to commemorate 16 of Britain’s most famous admirals and their naval victories in the Seven Years War and the war against revolutionary France.
It was dedicated to the Duchess of Beaufort, daughter of Admiral Boscawen and one of the admirals commemorated on the Naval Temple.
The neo-classical H-shaped temple was finished in 1801, and is topped with a triumphal arch.

River Wye at Redbrook , an ancient village near Tintern., -- the opposite side of the river-- thus in England !
The 17th Century saw the beginning of the copper and tin industries. Located at the bottom of the valley, dominated by two powerful brooks Redbrook became a natural choice for processing the copper and tin brought up the River Wye on trows – the famous flat bottomed boats. Mines in Cornwall provided the raw materials and the groves on Highbury Hill provided the trees for charcoal to heat the furnaces. In 1692 the copper works arrived and by 1800 had been replaced by the tinworks. The village grew and houses were built for the workers, more than 20 tiny cottages lines the track to the tinplate works with at least 5 public houses, 2 breweries and a chapel to serve the residents.
