BADGER C.P. BADGER DINGLE

Classical Temple at N.G.R. SO 7713 9934

II

Classical temple/summerhouse. Probably late C18. Possibly attributable to James Wyatt. Brick (English Garden Wall and random bond), stuccoed with stone dressings. Square plan with apses running east to west; single storey with basement below external ground level; 2 vaulted cellars with round arched openings beneath the apse on the west side and a single vaulted cellar to the east of the entrance on the south side. 2 empty statue niches flank the western apse; moulded eaves cornice. The temple is now virtually ruinous; the roof has fallen in and the 4 pillars of the former colonnade to the western apse have collapsed and lie in fragments to the front. The temple is marked as The Bird House on an 1837 map of the Badger Hall estate. Badger Hall (now demolished) was designed by Wyatt between 1779 and 1783. H.M. Colvin, Biographical Dictionary of English Architects, 1660 - 1840.
