Although the overall size and shape of the Temple has altered little over the past century or more, closer inspection shows changes to almost every building. The most noticeable change is right at the start of the old village, next to the car park. The quaint, traditonal white buildings in the top photograph were replaced by modern homes several decades ago. Other new homes have been built and, like much of the rest of this coastal stretch, new windows, porches, extensions and out-buildings have appeared. Note the tall railway signal in the centre distance of the old picture. A row of telegraph poles are the present day substitute. The tunnel under the road carrying the Temple Burn to the sea still has a similar appearance to that of a century ago. The zoom-in below picks out the cart, smoking chimneys and washing line from the charming bygone scene.
