Temple dating from between 1762 and 1769. Some damage has been caused as a result of heritage crime in 2017. The site has been re-secured and a planning application for more secure perimeter fencing, received in May 2018, is under consideration. Discussions between the Local Authority and Roehampton University are ongoing concerning the future of this building in the wider context of the Mount Clare site.
