The cuckoo stone is a fallen stone near woodhenge dating back to the bronze age and located about 2.5 kilometres from Stonehenge. It is part of the overall area of Stonehenge and could have been part of an ancient burial area.

Part of the Durrington Walls to Stonehenge walk. Not much to see, but part of the history of the landscape.

The Cuckoo stone has a lot of history and is great to walk around and see. The kids love running around it too. You should explore stonehenge as part of it all.
