Thornborough Henge Central



Visited 24.9.10
Fairly easy to find; between Thornborough and West Tanfield.
The stone banks of the Henge reminded me a lot of Mayburgh Henge near Penrith.
The Henge is well preserved, with banks standing perhaps 3 metres high in places. You get a good overall view of the site from the top of the banks. The weather was overcast and very, very windy – made it difficult to stand upright on top of the bank. There was a half decomposed rabbit at one of the entrances into the Henge.
