    6 Quirky Facts About Durrington

    1. Durrington Walls
      Around 1,500-1,700 metres in diameter, enclosing approximately 30 acres, Durrington Walls was actually a Neolithic settlement, dating to around 2,800 BC. Some scholars suggest it may have been the largest settlement in Europe at the time and could have held 1,000 homes and 4,000 people. It also had a wooden henge.
    2. A Tale of Two Henges
      Durrington’s Woodhenge stands 3 miles from the more famous Stonehenge and is believed to date from the same period. The wooden structure sat within the walled village, was 450 metres in diameter and made up of around 300 wooden pillars. While Stonehenge is aimed at the summer solstice, Woodhenge is aligned for the winter solstice. The two sites were connected by a road and river and also by the fact that both were used in rituals, with some experts surmising that Stonehenge was for the dead, while Woodhenge was for the living.
    3. Big Pigs
      Bones found that have been carbon dated to the period of henge building, shows there were abnormally large pigs for the time living in the area.
    4. Durrington Village
      Durrington itself is essentially a village. The larger population comes mostly from nearby Larkhill Camp, one of many military encampments set around Salisbury Plain which is the army’s largest training camp that has live fire practise and even some lost ‘ghost villages’ (villages cleared at short notice by the MOD when they requisitioned the land, the villages still stand, mostly undisturbed). Durrington with its warm, village feel doesn’t appear to have any ghosts. At least, we haven’t seen any. Yet.
    5. Doomed
      Durrington was big enough to have been featured in the Domesday Book, the record of taxation created by William the Conqueror in 1086. At the time Durrington had 2 plough fields and was worth the princely sum of 4 pounds a year. Which today would get you less than a pint of beer!
    6. The Great Fire/s
      Durrington has been scorched by fire twice. The first time was 1405 when much of the village was destroyed and the residents left homeless until Winchester College paid for the village to be rebuilt. The second big blaze occurred in 1921 and this time took down a number of houses plus the thatched roof of the Old Rectory (now rebuilt in slate).
