Description: Timber Circle in Wiltshire, England.
Durrington Walls is a prehistoric henge enclosure monument situated close to Woodhenge and Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain. It is a Class II henge and measures around 500m in diameter. It was first discovered by ariel photography in 1925.
The location was first occupied during the middle Neolithic(around 3100-2400BC). Two rings of concentric timber circles originally stood within the henge; the southern circle of four rings of timbers which was replaced by a five circle layout later in the Neolithic, and the northern circle consisting of two timber rings with an avenue of posts leading from the river Avon into it.
It is thought that the site and Stonehenge were individual locations of a larger temple complex.
The 100 metres rammed flint avenue is the first Neolithic road ever found.
