SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP
The Temple Trust is an historic building preservation trust for England and Wales devoted to the preservation of ornamental garden buildings and other historic structures. It is a fundraising trust and operates proactively.
The trust is currently developing a resource facility for the study of garden and architectural history and building conservation at Frogmore House in Watford, Herts. (a Grade II* listed building currently on the EH Buildings at Risk Register). The major capital project to conserve the building and re-instate the principal walled garden will involve a significant 'live' skills training programme aimed to get underway in time for the 300th anniversary of the construction of this early 18th century merchant's house. In 2010 The Temple Trust was successful in recovering the original carved ornamental front doorcase to Frogmore House -- found in a London salvage yard. This had previously been removed from the building in 1998, along with a still missing lead hopperhead with the date '1716'.
The Temple Trust was previously honoured with the Georgian Group Architectural award in 2007 for its project at the Cilwendeg Shell House in Pembrokeshire.
