PADSTOW PRIDEAUX PLACE, Padstow
8/129 Garden Temple to south west of
Garden temple. 1738-9 by Edmund Prideaux. Stuccoed stone rubble and brick and
ashlar stone. A small tetrastyle Ionic temple, the end columns engage the antae (not
idstyle in antis), the whole raised on a stylobate with a flight of steps at the
front. The pediment is finely dentilled. The temple has a shallow rectangular plan
and its side and rear walls are unpierced.
Remains of 2 later C19 columns with swags which originally framed an alley in front
of the temple, now lying behind the temple.
The temple was one of several garden buildings built by Edmund Prideaux and is
illustrated in drawings of the east front and garden both by Prideaux in the 1730s
and by Borlase in 1758.
