Henge west of Second Linthaugh (Ford)

Aerial photographs show a circular enclosure, about 38m in diameter, with a narrow ditch, which appears to be a henge. However, earlier accounts of this site do suggests that it might be a filled in marl pit rather than a prehistoric henge. However, a sufficient number of experts are now confident that it is a henge and it is now a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
