Durrington Walls is Britain's ( and therefore the world's) largest henge and is where the builders of Stonehenge are believed to have lived. All that remains are the remnants of the massive circular bank that was built around 2600 BC.

 Durrington Walls has been the subject of a major archaeological dig by the Stonehenge Riverside Project during the last 5 years. This has uncovered the first complete neolithic house floors in England, a midden showing evidence of feasting, and an Avenue linking the henge to the River Avon. It is estimated that there may have been hundreds of neolithic houses around the henge making it a major prehistoric settlement.

It is important in helping to understand the context of Stonehenge within the wider landscape. There has been little evidence found immediately around the stones of day-to-day domestic activity. Clearly the numbers of people involved in building that  monument was vast and they must have lived somewhere and Durrington Walls appears to be the most likely place.

Durrington Walls is 2 miles NE of Stonehenge and is next to Woodhenge. There is no information board on site to indicate where it is or what it contains. A large part of the henge is owned by the National Trust.
