English henge for sale

A rural property is for sale at Marden, Devizes, Wiltshire (England). This 1.1 million UKP sale (corresponding to about 1,58 million Euros or 1,79 million US$) includes a "5 bedroom house, former mill building, two brick outbuildings and other buildings with considerable renovation/ conversion potential.  Set in about 22 acres of water meadows, woodland and pasture paddocks including an Ancient Henge Monument. "
     The Marden Henge (Map Reference SU091584) is one of the biggest ever built in Britain, measuring 530 x 360m. The henge used to contain the "Hatfield Barrow". Excavations showed that there had been a 10.5 timber structure on it.
