Avebury

Avebury

While Stonehenge may be more famous, Avebury is actually older, quieter and also free. The charming village lies alongside the free standing stones. Avebury is part of a stone circle which is divided by roads into four sectors. The circle has been estimated to date form 2500 to 2200 BC which means that it falls between the first 2 stages of the construction of Stonehenge.

Silbury Hill

Silbury Hill

This unassuming and seemingly insignificant hill lies just off the A4 about 5 miles west of Marlborough. This enigmatic green mound is impressive not for its height (130ft) but its age and with its estimated construction date at 2600BC it stands as the largest artificial prehistoric mound in Europe.
