The temple at Gunnersbury Park was built for Princess Amelia, favourite daughter of George II, when she lived at Gunnersbury. The present 19th century house was once owned by the Rothschild family who sold it to Ealing Borough Council and Acton Borough Council. The grounds were opened as a public park by Neville Chamberlain in 1926.
ANOTHER LUNG FOR LONDON
In the early 1990s I was asked for advice on the appropriate paints and colours by The Temple Trust, who had taken on the responsibility of restoring it. I have worked with the Trust on a number of other projects.
My company Papers and Paints supplied the paint in specially mixed colours.
