The delightful town of Amesbury is the perfect place to stay if you want to visit Stonehenge and the prehistoric sites in and around Salisbury Plain. Just a short walking distance from the small town is the neolithic earthwork of Woodhenge, older than Stonehenge it has six concentric rings of holes which appear to have been made for wooden posts. Today these are marked by concrete posts. Amesbury is nestled on one side by a loop in the river Avon and when viewed on a map it gives the appearance of being protected by the historic sites of Ogbury, Normanton Downs, Stonehenge, Woodhenge and Durrington Walls which seem to follow the curve of the river.
