The Knowlton Circles are a group of at least three Neolithic henges in Knowlton (Dorset, United Kingdom), in the proximity of which there are also several Bronze Age round barrows. The best preserved and most famous henge of the three is enclosing a 12th century Norman church. For many, Knowlton Church represents like no other the transition from pagan to Christian ritual traditions. The sites were the subject of research by Bournemouth University in the mid 1990s. Knowlton Church is open to the public.
