Took a little while to find this one but once we inspected photos on this site soon narrowed the search area down. Interesting spot with convenient parking.

Bagged as YSM223 Woodhenge. Not what I was expecting here at all, the henge not the bolt! It had it's saving graces a Pokemon gym, which we took over but we didn't keep it for long and a nice additional old virtual cache. More culling off my lovely list of trig points and early on in the day too, I don't think Mr U2 wants to drive all day and arrive back at the hotel at 12pm tonight, shame as I really wanted to bag TP7042 - Woodford "the Lazarus of pillars, arisen from the dead"...maybe next visit

Amazing how well Bronze Age concrete lasts! Following a visit to Stonehenge, where they were re-enacting the auction of the monument 100 years ago today. Apparently the buyer, a Mr Chubb, had been sent to the auction by his wife to buy a set of dining room chairs. One wonders what was said, by whom, when he got home!

This surface block was an easy find, just beyond the notice board and rubbish bin at the edge of a small car park. It was raining steadily and the Belgian couple looking at the notice board must have wondered what I was doing, taking photographs of a chunk of wet concrete in the ground.... If only they knew! The views were good, without being spectacular, particularly to the north and east.

The monument, the site of a Neolithic timber henge (I think there is a clue in the name), is adjacent to the west, Beacon Hill lies to the east, Boscombe Down airfield to the southeast and over Durrington to the hills either side of the Avon Valley to the north.
