Consisting of a triple henge alignment, the Thornborough Henges are considered one of the most important ancient sites in Britain. Often called the Stonehenge of the North, it is the largest ritual religious site on the British Isles, and is thought to be between 5,000 and 6,000 years old. Meaning they may be the first monument in the world aligned to Orion, predating the pyramids by 1,000 years.
In the footsteps of Iain Sinclair and Alan Moore, this is an updated system of geometric relationships across London. (Books Lud Heat and From Hell, respectively) Sinclair based his pentangle on the relationships of Nicholas Hawksmoor’s churches (early 18th century), and Cleopatra’s Needle (installed in 1878). Updated for the 21st Century, a similar pentangle can be formed with the modern composition of Ouroboros and Dividers: the London Eye.
