But why this
British Tours Ltd. in London we have often
remarked at how many visitors to England believe that
the prehistoric stone circle in Wiltshire, England, is
called Stonehedge rather than Stonehenge. The
monument is by far the most common misspelling of any
The main reason for the misspelling seems to be that the
correct word 'Henge' is quirky and peculiarly English. The
word is derived from the Old English word for 'hanging' (the
name Stonehenge, i.e 'Hanging Stone' refers to the lintels
on the upright stones)
"Very interesting, but I was
actually looking for..."
