A megalithic monument on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire. Completed in several constructional phases from c.2950 BC, it is composed of a circle of sarsen stones surrounded by a bank and ditch and enclosing a circle of smaller bluestones.

From Old English stān ‘stone’ + an element related to hengan ‘to hang’.
