Little Temple, Temple Newsam Park - Leeds

A garden eye-catcher and viewpoint built in the 1760s and probably designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown. Sandstone and rendered brick, stone-slate roof with clay ridge tiles. A hybrid design, mixing classical temple form with gothick detailing. The temple is in poor condition.
