Knowlton Henges, a very mysterious place situated just North of Wimborne in Dorset, England, is a ruined medieval church at the centre of a Neolithic ritual henge earthwork which symbolises the transition from pagan to Christian worship. The earthworks surrounding the Church date back to the same period as Stone Henge, around 5000 years ago however the church is of more recent times. This site is mentioned in the Domesday book of 1086-7 and was originally owned by King Edward although the actual age of the church is unknown.
I think the thing that struck me most of my last visit back home is these “Earthworks” as they are known (mounds of earth, ramparts, burial mound etc) are absolutely everywhere around Dorset & Wiltshire & Hampshire, quite literally littering the countryside and now, as with Stonehenge, just sit in the middle of fields or on the edge of major roads…going quite un-noticed……amazing really…there is just so much history here !
