A Visit to the Past

Yesterday my partner Julie and I visited Avebury in Wiltshire. The site of the worlds largest Megalithic stone circle and Neolithic henge ( a steep bank and deep ditch ).  Avebury consists of 3 stone circles within the henge and long avenues leading to associated sites. It was a bit eerie walking around the stones some of which weigh in excess of 40 tons, its still unclear if they have any astronomical connection. I remembered a 1977 children’s television drama serial called “The Children of the Stones”  that was filmed at Avebury and takes place in the fictional village of “Milbury”.

The site is well worth a visit, but try and pick a warmer day than I did to go on.
