Avebury, Wiltshire, England

Our hosts, Ginny and Brian took us to the very lovely village of Avebury. Below are some photos I took:





More information about Avebury my be found at

Some info from the site follows:
"The Wiltshire village of Avebury is home to the largest prehistoric stone circle in Britain and the most popular megalithic site after Stonehenge.
Like its more famous counterpart, the monuments of Avebury were constructed as early as 3000 BC and have been designated a World Heritage Site. Many travelers prefer the more atmospheric Avebury, with its peaceful village setting, to the heavily-touristed Stonehenge. See also our Avebury Photo Gallery, which takes you on a virtual tour of the site. "

Hi Millie - I like your Avebury photos. Looks like we had similarly cloudy/sunny days for our visits. I wonder what it is like to actually live in such a pretty and unusually historic place?
