Max Gate and garden is built on what is left of the Flagstones enclosure , a twin of the early phase 1 Stonehenge . The rest of it was removed for the Dorchester bypass . The monument had a burial at it's centre sealed by a large sarsen and when Max Gate was being built a sarsen was found covering charred bones ,both stones were used as garden features .


Well a bit of detective work unearths Flagstone enclosure on TMA,

plus the review mentions you could see Conquer barrow (framed by the drawing room window of Max Gate house) until it got covered by trees, as it is today..
