The Thornborough Henges — Fieldnotes

I'm amazed there are so few posts for the Thornborough Henges as they are such an important part of our Neolithic inheritance and, as a triple henge, unique in the UK if not the world.

Given the link with Orion's belt posited by Jan Harding, readers might like to compare the excellent Orkneyjar website which compares the layout of the 3 main Orkney henges with Thornborough:

Coincidence or not?

Maybe Yorkshire folk should campaign for the whole 'sacred vale' from the Devil's Arrows through the various henges to Thornborough and beyond to become a World Heritage Site. It might help to stop the area becoming like another Eurodisney-esque 'nature reserve' once Tarmac Northern have finished with it.

If someone wanted to built a motorway through the Great Pyramids at Giza there would be global outrage: why not at Thornborough too?
