Temple of Theseus, Hagley Hall, Hagley - Bromsgrove

Doric temple of 1758 designed by James 'Athenian' Stewart. It stands in a grade I registered park and garden 800 metres north of Hagley Hall. It is separated from the rest of the estate by the A456. This relatively isolated location has rendered it vulnerable to vandalism so security fencing has been erected. Discussions continue with the owner on a strategy to secure the future of the building. A new visitor centre on the estate gained planning permission in 2014 but works have not started yet.
