Enjoyed the centre at Borger, enjoyed visiting D52, however, hadn't made the connection until now. I know, must pay more attention! Looking forward to the day we can even think about going out there again Posted by costaexpress

Stonehenge / News by moss

That's it; so has this just been 'forgotten' or are we to believe that some of the stones from the dismantled Welsh circle were first used at Bluestonehenge before being uprooted again and put in the Aubrey Holes? Funny how the latest programme made no mention of this earlier theory. ironstone Posted by ironstone

Stonehenge / News by moss

Nope. There was definitely a programme a few years back showing Parker Pearson doing a dig somewhere right down by the river and apparently discovering the markings of a circle which he claimed was probably comprised of bluestones later removed and reinstalled in the Aubrey Holes at Stonehenge. It may also have contained stuff about Durrington Walls as well but I distinctly recall the bit about the bluestones. ironstone Posted by ironstone

Well spotted. Notice that the Manchester account on the subject has been taken down, and it is just recorded in a wiki......

Fascinating programme; at last an entirely credible explanation for the presence of the bluestones at Stonehenge although am I wrong in remembering that Parker Pearson had previously thought that they (or at least some of them) had been previously erected at another site not far from Stonehenge, right by the river? ironstone Posted by ironstone

Yes, I've heard that story. I'm unconvinced that it's prehistoric. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Local legend has it that rebel soldiers from the 1798 rebellion were chased from Ballinamuck to around here where they were killed. These stone supposedly indicate their final resting places. Posted by lettergonnell
