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.


  1. Many a happy hour spent there when my children were young.

  2. what a great view! i also enjoyed this site more than stonehenge because its more low-key, very nice memories...
