Classical Temple at N.G.R. S0 7625 9911


Classical temple/rotunda. Probably late C18. Attributed to Wyatt.
Sandstone and stuccoed red brick, Roman cement to dome. Circular open
fronted colonnade of 4 Tuscan columns with square pads to top and bottom,
plain frieze supporting moulded entablature, ribbed dome; approached
by a flight of 4 shallow steps, the temple is terraced into the hill
on a rock outcrop. The back wall of the interior retains a stone bench
and the square holes for the wooden seat above. The lower of the 2 paths
to the east is tunnelled for a distance of approximately 15m through
the natural rock, a feature designed, no doubt, to give added interest
to the approach to the temple.
