Countess Rd, Amesbury, Salisbury SP4 7AR, UK


Woodhenge was built around the same time as Stonehenge and is only 2 miles away from it. Made up of rings of timber posts, its purpose is still unknown, but is likely to have been used for worship and ritual. The site now has concrete posts where the wooden ones once stood. Nearby is the Cuckoo Stone and the remains of Durrington Walls, a neolithic superhenge. There is little to see but it kids enjoy running around the posts and exploring the area.
