Discover the hidden story of the Avebury Landscape on Wednesday 20 August

Discover the hidden story of the Avebury Landscape on Wednesday 20 August

Our journey will take us from the Neolithic to the present day. Along the way we’ll  wend our way through the world’s largest prehistoric stone circle and the West Kennet Avenue, explore West Kennet Long Barrow and discover the secrets of Saxon and Medieval Avebury.

 We’ll be walking around 5 miles in total (about 3 1/2 in the morning and a more leisurely 1 1/2 miles in the afternoon). But we’ll break our journey by returning to the Old Farmyard for a delicious light lunch prepared by our Circles Café team. Tickets are priced at £30 (including lunch and parking) and booking is essential. To book call 01672 538 016. You can find out more on our Avebury events page.

I hope you can join me on our ramble through one of the world’s most extraordinary places…
