The Hatfield Mound of Great Marden Henge

Mother Mounds, the Hatfield Barrow of Marden Henge

 

Immediately inside the eastern entrance lies all that remains of the Hatfield Barrow, once an immense monumental mound which was over 200 feet (70 metres) in diameter and more than 30 feet (9 metres) high. In 1769 it was proclaimed that the Hatfield barrow was second only to the giant Silbury Hill - the largest man made mound in Europe.

 

Standing overlooking the land and a once fine henge called Marden Henge that had ceremonial sweat lodges which have also been found in Orkney, the Hatfield Mound seemed immortal. Yet by 1809 ploughing had reduced it to a mere bump. Surrounded by a water filled ditch this mound was like a sacred island.

As the monument is sited close to the river’s source, it has been suggested that there may have been communication between Hatfield and the great henge of Durrington Walls close to Stonehenge.

 

The Catherine earth current intimately associated with the Duke Ley, courses through the mound's remains, no doubt remembering the mound, water and ceremonies.
