SE2879 : Thornborough Henge

near to Thornborough, North Yorkshire, Great Britain

Thornborough Henge
Thornborough Henge
One of the most important prehistoric sites in England north of Stonehenge. This is the middle of a series of three henges that are best viewed from the air (see SE2879 : Thornborough Henge). The other two fall in adjacent squares. Two of the henges are owned by Tarmac who are threatening to destroy the prehistoric landscape by extending its Nosterfield Quarry onto the surrounding area.
