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.
