Ferrybridge Henge

 

What is a Henge? A henge is a colloquial name given to a Neolithic earthwork mound, usually in the shape of a circle or oval with a trench on the inner side of the mound, and located close to a waterway and in fertile ground.

 

In some instances, the henge is used for ceremonial purposes and can include stone or wood monuments.

 

The henge usually falls into three distinct classes; class one, two and three. The class of the henge refers to the number of entrances. Class one has a single entrance, usually a gap in the earth mound, class two has two entrances directly opposite each other and class three has four entrances.

 

Although there are many henge monuments scattered up and down the country, with no conclusive evidence as to the origins, Yorkshire does have its share of them.

 

Undoubtedly, some of the most famous in Yorkshire are the Thornborough Henges in Masham, North Yorkshire. But did you know we have one in our back garden?

 

The Henge adjacent to the town of Ferrybridge is a class two henge with two entrances. The henge also has two trenches, a bank and is circular in shape.
