Description

Knowlton Church and rings is an intriguing site full of interest and atmosphere. A ruined Norman Church stand proud in the centre of Neolithic henge earthworks.

The Neolithic rings were probably constructed as a religious site, and the circular bank and ditches have been well preserved today. There is in fact evidence through crop markings of a further five circles and a number of barrows in the fields around the area.

The Church was built to destroy the religious power of the rings in times when Christianity was surging over Paganism. Its parishioners of the near by village were unfortunately killed by the plague of 1348 and the church fell in to disuse and then ruin in the 18th century.
