The Thornborough Henges


Quarrying at henge site rejected

"Plans to quarry gravel from part of Britain's biggest prehistoric site were rejected yesterday but the construction company Tarmac is to appeal.
A full public inquiry is now likely over the fate of land surrounding Thornborough Henges, three giant discs encircled by earthen ramparts which have survived from a complex of eight erected around 5000BC in the Vale of York." - The Guardian, 22nd Feb 2006, Martin Wainwright,,1715002,00.html
