Nature The Heel Stone is now attributed to Stonehenge 3 and was therefore not contemporary with the holes.

Thank you for your feedback. Average rating: These features were ignored or not seen by the later antiquarians to investigate the site, and it was not until the s during the work carried out by Colonel William Hawley that Hawley's assistant Robert Newall identified a ring of pits he named in honour of Aubrey and his early survey.

It was a little rushed, and I didn't even have time to go into the museum. The land around Stonehenge is owned by the National Trust. Clear all.
