A henge consists of a ditched enclosure with an outer bank ,they rarely have associated stones . The monoliths at Stonehenge are not the henge and even the henge is not quite right as the bank is on the inside .E.P.

I think one also has to ask why the archaeological community there has never addressed the problem of "Where were the toilets at Stonehenge?" Perhaps Freud or modern psychology could provide some insights into the answer to that question.
For me, the remains at the quarries used for Stonehenge would be of very high interest.
One has to remember that Britain had old growth trees then.
I am enjoying the new petroglyph studies of Stonehenge.
We know where the some of the smaller bluestones came from . In some cases as accurately as a matter of metres eg. Rhosyfelin at Pont Saeson , the general area for the source of the bluestones is around the Preseli Hills in Wales 140 miles to the west .
we don't know where the larger iconoc sarsen stones were sourced from ,they may have been local or as is often suggested moved from areas about 20-30 miles to the north .
Palynology suggests that the area around Stonehenge at the time of build was generally scrub with a few small trees .
The area has very little rock art but there are some engravings of axes and daggers on some of the monoliths , not quite typical rock art for Britain ,they were almost certainly engraved in the Bronze Age as the weapons they appear to represent are closest stylistically to that period.These engravings would have been done long after the erection of the monument .
