You are hereWoodhenge


Woodhenge is much older than Stonehenge and is aligned to the Midsummer sunrise. The monument consisted of concentric rings of tall wooden posts and must have been an impressive sight when it was completed. Rings of concrete markers now mark where the posts would have originally stood.

During excavation of the site the skull of a three year old child was discovered in the centre of the circle with a cut in the skull. The child may have served as a sacrifice for the site but nobody really knows.

Reached from a car park off the A345.
