Stonehenge II

A recreated stonehenge stands in country field, with Easter Island moai heads standing as sentries 

Edit Place

In a field alongside this small country road stands a replica of Stonehenge.

This 60% scale replica is built by, and on the farmland of, the late Alfred Shepperd along with the help of his friend and neighbor Doug Hill, and represents what Stonehenge would look like before weather and erosion toppled some of the original. Two years after Stonehenge II was built, a pair of Easter Island moai figures were added to the site.

One major difference between Stonehenge and Stonehenge II is weight. Whereas the stones at Stonehenge weigh over 4 tons, the ones in Stonehenge II (with the exception of two stones in the center) are made of plaster applied to a wire mesh frame and are considerably lighter.
