What’s the go with the Federal Highway Henge?

By astrojax - 10 January 2013 24

henge

Noticed this mini-Stonehenge off the federal highway, opposite turn for the tulip farm just before dipping down to yass river…

Anyone know its provenance?

UPDATE: Thanks to BenMac who sent in the aerial view:

Hoorah! I can answer this. I heard an interview on the radio one weekend – a farmer and his wife who love stone henge decided to build their own one. You can go up and visit and there may or may not be a fee to get in. I believe they are thinking of getting some kind of coffee cart/refreshment arrangement going.

I admire the entrepreneurial spirit, but it’s seems pretty half-arsed to slap together a semblance of a henge and then trying to cash in on it. It’s not even a particularly intricate or interesting one.

Strictly speaking it’s a stone circle, as opposed to a henge as a henge is typically enclosed by a raised bank boundary. Sites like Avebury include stone circles within the henge, in fact two stone circles in the case of Avebury.

However, as stone circles go, it’s pretty cool.

I heard that the owner is also a stone mason and he created this for his wife. Rumour has it that if you see if from the air it is in the shape of a heart.

Now that story is a lot nicer :)

It may have been purely co-incidental; But I drove past it on the evening of 21st of December last year and noticed it had a small crown in among it.

No one’s forcing you to go and see it.

Anyone with a nearmaps account to check if there’s a recent/clear enough photo to verify?

Both Googlemaps and nearmap have it as a two circles, one within the other.

Surely the issue is can you use the stones to predict astrological events?

Thanks. How long has it been there, I wonder?

Such as whether my karma is in line with Uranus on the 28th day of the cycle or did you mean astronomical events like eclipses etc?

I’d settle for rising over a particular stone on the solstice.
