Having witnessed the field clearences at coate/ broom manor i would say that some of the large stones were likely to have been on site before the monument was erected. Also some of the Burning pits may just be field clearance. There are piles of sarsen all over the place, that are field clearance.


Oh I don't think many people still believe that all the stones were dragged off the Downs. Plenty would have been local I'm sure and possibly many more still lying beneath beneath plough depth in the immediate area.
