There are a couple of scenes in A Very Private Murder that have the villagers up to no good in an apparently ancient stone circle in the grounds of Curzon House. And at midnight, too. The circle is not Neolithic, as first suspected, but probably early Victorian. In other words, it is a folly. The one in the photo (left) is much grander but is also a folly. Situated just outside Masham, it is worth a visit to anyone interested in such things but be warned: it is the very devil to find.
