    And getting the stones there , with all those hills this is quite an achievement :

    Sarsen Stone

    The giant sarsen stones (which form the outer circle), weigh as much as 50 tons each. To transport them from the Marlborough Downs, roughly 20 miles to the north.
    Blue Stone

    The Blue Stones were from the Prescelly Mountains, located roughly 240 miles away, at the southwestern tip of Wales.
