Timberrrrr..35 ton Woodhenge is given the chop by local council.<br />
<br />
A pub landlord who was inspired to build a wooden version of Stonehenge out of 35 tonnes of felled trees has been given six weeks to axe the impressive structure by officials.<br />
<br />
Charlie Newman, 49, has erected a 12ft tall circle made out of huge butts of Monterery pine trees on a field he owns near to his pub in the village of Worth Matravers, Dorset.<br />
<br />
The installation is made from 12, 10ft tall 'plinths' that each weigh about two-and-a-half tonnes and are topped with 8ft long sections of trunk.
