The Temple of Isis sits on the bank of the duck pond in St Annes Park. It is one of the many follies built in the park during the 1800’s. The parkland was formally the estate of the Guinness family and they build 10 follies on the banks of the Naniken river.
Until a few years ago the temple was open and you could stand inside it overlooking the pond. It was my favourite view of the small island in the middle of the lake. Sadly to try and stop vandalism and further destruction of the structure the local authorities have now put a cage on the access points. At the same time it received a fresh coat of paint and now gleams in the sunlight.The 10 follies in the park have all fallen into disrepair but there is discussion locally about making better efforts to preserve them.
