Very interesting historical site which has had an archaeological dig going on for two weeks. National Trust volunteers have been on hand to give information or answer any questions. The dig comes to an end on Friday 12th August.
Durrington Walls is one of the largest henge features existing. Superficially it now is “just” an embankment area but there is lot more under the surface. The whole site is accessible land, best taken from Woodhenge. There are excellent panorama boards at key spots to help understand the hub of civilisation that was there 3500 years ago.

You'll automatically tick this attraction off when you visit Woodhenge and the Cuckoo Stone. It's a place of beauty, great walks and tranquility for those wishing to walk for a few hours across country. Just be mindful of the presents left behind by the grazing sheep.
Not sure if this would have been particularly interesting without the dig going on at the time we visited. TBH didn't know enough about it before we went there and there doesn't seem to be an awful lot to see apart from Woodhenge in the field opposite.
