WESTON RHYN C.P. TEMPLE WOOD
SJ 23 NE
SJ 2804 3635
1/111 Stone Circle at N.G.R.
SJ 2804 3635
II
Shown on O.S. map as Temple.
Sham stone circle. Circa 1850-60 for the owner of The Quinta.
Limestone. Similar in plan to Stonehenge with outer circle of orthostats,
surmounted by continuous curving lintel, comprising linked capstones, several
of which have now fallen, enclosing an inner U-shaped arrangement of trilithons,
some paired. Many of the uprights have drill-holes and the lintels are
fixed by means of iron ties. The stone circle is partially ruinuous but
this may well have been the original intention. The Quinta, a house of c.1850-
60, is not included in this list. B.o.E. p. 312; Barbara Jones, Follies and
Grottoes (1974) pp. 245, 381.
