NOTES: Rievaulx Terrace is a half mile long grass terrace which was constructed over a period of eight years from 1749 by Thomas Duncombe II. At each end of the terrace stands a temple: the Doric or Tuscan Temple, and the Ionic Temple. The design of both is attributed to Sir Thomas Robinson. This, the Ionic temple, was intended as a dining pavilion and the basement was fitted out with a kitchen.
