Surveying for a Wood Henge

I had a fun afternoon surveying the markers in preparation for the final Wood Henge up at Abriachan Forest.

The final construction will mark the meridian from north to south, the equinoxes, mid summer and mid winter rising and setting positions of the Sun. Between the main solstice posts we’ll eventually place markers for the ancient cross quarter days, or Celtic Wheel of Time.

A simple henge like this can track the solar year, lunar rising positions and the changing constellations in the night sky.
