I have finally been and seen the Avebury stones and what a magical place it is. There is an incredible atmosphere that surrounds the stones and it was very cold whilst I was there so very few people around as well. The stones were gradually errected over a period of several centuries between 4000 and 5000 years ago by neolithic settlers in the area. It is believed that the stones were used as important pagan ritual sites.

Was thinking of visiting Stonehenge but wouldn’t have had time, plus I believe you can’t actually walk among the stones unless on an arranged tour...

Such a beautiful, ancient spot. Did you get to see/experience the super old oak trees nearby - with the marvelous roots - as well?
