Temple in grounds of Mount Clare, Minstead Gardens

Off the back of the article ‘Wandsworth (Conservation Area) Advisory Committee (9 January 2018)’ there were a couple of requests to add a photo of the Temple to the blog. A generous photographer from the Alton West part of the estate provided a picture, which is provided below. This picture was taken roughly in November 2014, note that even then this Grade II* monument was boarded up. In the photo you can see in the background the DARA Focus Hall.

 

Perhaps what is a little surprising is how long it has taken to start placing this monument on the radar for some needed attention. At the Putney Society organised event ‘Roehampton University and how it relates to the local community’ on 24 September 2015 the Temple was asked about and there was a mention of the Temple being Heritage at risk and that there had been some vandalism to it.

Some comments…..

June/July edition

True, the author of this article received this edition some point from 29th July to 14th August.

Alton Activity Centre Closed

Great to see the petition still going, though how many signatures are signed up and what’s next? Roehampton & Putney Heath ward Councillors raised this at the Roehampton Partnership, had the motion passed, then what?

Sue supports Roehampton community groups

Whilst this is important, there is no mention of what is happening with the community group in the Alton East whose community centre is to be demolished as part of the “Alton West” regeneration. Has this community group been engaged to understand whether they are fine with what is being proposed?

Alton East developments

This is gaining traction and there is no mention of it. Disappointing.

Poor maintenance or just don’t care

Well, last night when walking back from Alton West to Alton East I noticed a couple of light bulbs not working. So, tonight popped out for a quick walk around the area and noticed that in small area of the estate that there were nine light bulbs out of action, yes, nine!

Four of these were on one building.

To top it off, I tripped on the footpath, though fortunately I kept my balance. I’ll show you where in the photos that have been produced.

Let’s see how long it is before these are addressed.
