Sark Henge

Commemorating 450 years of Fiefdom.

Sark Henge

Sark Henge was built in 2015 to commemorate the 450 year anniversary of Queen Elizabeth I granting the Fief of Sark to Helier De Carteret, Seigneur of St Ouen, on 6th August 1565.

Nine stones of Jersey granite, previously used by Helier’s tenants as gate hinges to enclose their fields, were erected in a ring to represent the nine medieval territories: Fort, Moinerie, Ville, Valette, Avant le Creux, Dixcart, Bourel, Beauregard, Petit Sercq.

Each of the nine stones is aligned with a local landmark or by the sun, marking the winter and summer solstice and the spring and autumn equinox.
