The highly entertaining biography of Frederick Hervey, who built Downhill and the Mussenden Temple, is now available on Amazon as a Kindle download (£3.29).

Author Stephen Price sheds light on the fascinating story of the man behind the Temple.

The Earl Bishop was in fact Frederick Augustus Hervey, fourth Earl of Bristol and Church of Ireland Bishop of Derry.

Born into a distinguished Suffolk family in 1730, Frederick Augustus was many things; scientist, agitator, art collector and Royal Chaplain to George III, who referred to him as “that wicked prelate”.

Stephen says: “The print version sold out but customers are still asking for it in the bookshops.

“ So they need not be disappointed this Christmas if they want a tale of incredible wealth and eccentricity for their e-reader.”
