    Strange little structure around a storm drain

    Nothing like using natural materials when available.

    Yeah, love those straps across the top beams. Somebody had a little whimsical fun with that structure. No bureaucrats were involved in the design. :rolleyes:

    Got excited when I saw the title of this thread, the real Woodhenge is just up the road from me near Amesbury.

    Ya, no idea why it is there, in the middle of no where.

    Are there any trees upstream of that culvert? If so, I suspect it is there to stop deadfalls from blocking the culvert in case of a flash flood. I've never experienced one, but the Southwest is notorious for mammoth flash floods in the desert after a heavy rain in the mountains.

    Sounds like a good theory.
