The Rollright Stones and the Diocese of Oxford
Many thanks for the lovely article – just one slight inaccuracy. The Rollrights were not on land owned by the Diocese of Oxford, they were privately owned.
The pertinent sentence, ". . . the Pagans were also supported by the Anglican Diocese of Oxford, on whose land the stones are located," is badly worded. The sentence ought to read, ". . . within whose diocesan boundaries the stones are located." [Editor]
