Avebury is known for it's Stone Circles which is far older but lesser known than it's noisy neighbour Stonehenge which is a 40 minute drive away. The West Kennet Long Barrow forms part of the Avebury complex, and you can walk amongst and touch the...More

A half a mile walk from the road but well worth it. A view that has changed little in 3,000 years surrounds you. Once at the barrow you can walk inside, helpful to take a torch or your phone but not essential as you become...More
