The Temple - Diary

A View from Barrhill before the tree planting

The view from Barrhill looking towards Cally.  It gives a good idea of the open ground which lay between the Temple and Cally house and how the Temple would have been very visible from the house at one time and also that before the new planting in the thirties, the Barrhill was not planted.

Become a Cally Woods Ambassador

Do you fancy becoming a community 'ambassador' for Cally Woods.  As part of the Temple Project which is currently restoring the fabric of the Temple folly in the woods, we are seeking to encourage greater community 'ownership' and involvement in the history and heritage of the woods as part of the wider designed landscape of Cally. Nic Coombey and David Steel will lead a walk through Cally Woods on Wednesday 22nd October. The walk is open to anyone interested in learning more about the woods and their history.  Join in by meeting at the Murray Information Centre at 10am.

The scaffolding is now up around the Temple.  Happily with little damage to the path leading in to the Temple.
