The Temple is a surviving remnant of the original landscaped gardens of the mansion at Canons, and is a Grade II Listed Building. The Historic England website describes it (abridged) thus:-

"Garden Temple, supporting walls and raised paved area in Canons Park. Early C19. Red brick with stone dressing. Ionic tetrastyle portico with pediment. Wing walls. Rear has distyle portico in antis. Wing walls and raised paved area in front. Interior rendered."

An information board in the park illustrates how it might have originally looked with a substantial glass palmhouse attached to the front here.
