Points of Interest/Notes on this walk:
The Roman ruins on the southern shore of Virginia Water were brought from the Roman city of Leptis Magna in the Libyan desert by Hanmer Warrington & Augustus Earle in 1816. After sitting unappreciated outside the British Museum they were reconstructed at Virginia Water under the directorship of Jeffry Wyatville in 1826. This 'Temple of Augustus' is comprised of Corinthian columns supported on pedestals with half broken columns both standing & lying on the ground.
Virginia Water is part of Great Windsor Park and was created in the 18th Century by the Duke of Cumberland.
