to south-west of Stokecliff
(Formerly Listed as:
Summerhouse about 60 metres south
west of Stoke Cliff)
Summerhouse, called "the temple" by the residents of
Stokecliff. c1820-30. Plastered stone rubble, roof material
PLAN: Terraced into steep hillside, the back part enclosed by
stone walls, the front part open like a simple portico in
EXTERIOR: Built to resemble a classical temple. Roman Doric
style. The front is an open 3-bay colonnade of timber columns
(in August 1990, the outer 2 had collapsed and the middle 2
were leaning) to a Doric frieze with mutules, triglyphs and
the rest under a false pediment, the front gable end of the
roof. The roof has no cladding.
INTERIOR: The plastered stone walls contain a series of
round-headed niches, 3 on the back wall and one to each side
wall. These could have been used for statues or night lights.
There is the remains of an old wooden bench, probably not an
original feature. Boarded common rafter roof.
