Knyff and Kip’s engraving shows the temple standing in its original position, beside the Bowling Green to the south-west of the House. It was moved to its present position north-east of the house in 1750. The sculptor Jan Nost is responsible for the statue of Flora. It originally stood in the centre of Flora’s Garden, which occupied the area between the south parterre and the boundary road (where the Canal Pond is now sited).
