Broomend of Crichie (Circle henge)

Earlier on this year part of the henge had keyhole excavation work done by Richard Bradley and team. We are waiting for the results of the total findings... but the day I was there bone fragments had been found in the inner circle, a possible wooden post hole was being pursued and the henge looked like it was actually 'U' shaped with straight vertical walls and much deeper than what we see today. Fantastic to see what lies under the grass and how big this site must of been with its stone avenue of 72 stones and possible recumbent stone circle at the end of the avenue past the henge which possibly housed 6 stones.

Surely the most important site in the NE and usually the most over looked. I love this site, alone in its field surrounded by the paper mill, housing estates and petrol station... under the moon all this is forgotten... ancient connections still being made!
