As was the custom, the builders of early Christian churches built over many of the sites of sacred places.


Thankfully the site at Stonehenge was left unscathed and it is perhaps because of this that many people throughout the centuries and to this day feel they can connect there with a primal sacredness.

Whereas many ancient temples in the British Isles were circular and sacred to a Goddess, the Christian churches which superseded them were built on the square and were sacred to their male God.

The Stonehenge site was considered too large to be overbuilt but many of its stones were demolished and removed.

Although they did not build it the Druids have used Stonehenge for centuries for rituals and continue the tradition to this day.

Our computer reconstruction shows how Stonehenge might have appeared if all the building stages could have been put together at the same time and illustrates that it was unlikely to have been built by the primitive savages that history would have us believe.


On the contrary, for many millennia this Island was considered a Holy Isle and was known to be a major centre of learning throughout the civilised world.

It is not really known who built it, but at its heart was a unique, spiritual and creative culture. All other Temples throughout the world were built oriented to the eastern equinoctial sunrise. Unusually however, Stonehenge was oriented to the Midsummer Solstice Sunrise in the North East and more importantly to the Midwinter Solstice Sunrise in the South West.
