Today has been the turn of Avebury. It is a small village in the county of Wiltshire which has grown up partly inside what was once the largest of megalithic structures, rivalling the more well known Stonehenge.
I enjoyed my day there even more than my visit to Stonehenge. The village itself is very attractive and I felt a continuity with the past was emphasised by the presence of the more "modern" buildings and the sheep grazing around the stones.
Avebury is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site though it is mentioned alongside Stonehenge which rather steals the limelight.
