The stone circle and henge that surrounds the village of Avebury, is only one in a series of monuments concentrated in this small area. The site is a remnant of a ritual Neolithic landscape, which still survives although degraded with time and the actions of over zealous groups in past centuries. What remains of the circle now is only a small proportion of what must have been an awe-inspiring place when it was in use over 4000 years ago.Associated with pagan devil worship , many stones have been buried or broken ....
This was a place i have always wanted to visit
at least once in my lifetime . Unless you went around
again - it was a short trip to view it - We did it in
10 minutes !! A barrier is placed all the way around
so you could not get close as you would have liked .
I would have liked to go in and
amoung the stones , to touch and take more photographs
inside ... I am glad i went to see it myself - However
i enjoyed Avebury Stone circle more , as you could
get close and feel the stones . . .. And i know Amy
of MAGICAL MUSE will appreciate these photo`s !!
A couple of momento`s of my visit at their shop ...
