Cannings Marsh Map - With Slopes And Sarsen Route Marked

A reduced image of a map (Click for larger) showing the approximate extent of Cannings Marsh and other wet areas. Slopes are marked in brown. The most logical route for transporting the sarsens from the Marlborough Downs to the top of Redhorn Hill is shown. (The only route across Salisbury Plain that is level enough starts at the top of Redhorn Hill). The track up is a manageable slope. It will be noted that the route goes through Marden Henge.
