'Stonehenge of the North' opens to the public February 3, 2023A Neolithic site in Yorkshire dubbed the 'Stonehenge of the North' has been made accessible to the public after being gifted to the nation.
The Thornborough Henges, near West Tanfield, between Ripon and Masham in North Yorkshire, are three huge circular earthworks which are more than 4,500 years old.
The mysterious henges are now under the management of English Heritage after two of the circles were gifted by building materials company Tarmac and parts of the wider site were also gifted by owners.
English Heritage will provide free access to the site during reasonable daylight hours.
