Square temple located on the rocky peninsula south of Weston-super-Mare. Plaster was found on the outer wall of the cella; voussoir stones have also been found, which probably indicate celestory windows. The outer portico measured c.44 x 43 ft., the cella 26½ ft. square, all walls were around 2 ft. thick. The temple faced south-east. Originally built c. 340AD, the porch and annexes were added c. 355, and it was "ransacked by barbarians" c. 367. (Type Ic, or Ib)
