BADGER C.P. BADGER DINGLE

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

II

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.
