Your description of a mini Stonehenge sums that up quite well!  Very interesting. Presumable for some sort of worship?

Looks very interesting, since being on here I'm being shown places fairly local to me I didn't know existed, this is just a 30 min car journey from me ?

Nice place & shots, I also like the bit darker sky behind it.
