A girls’ weekend in Paris that turned into a 7 week holiday
I hadn’t been to Avebury or Bath on any previous trips so they were on the list this year.
Despite the weather I headed off to Avebury with my not-so-trusty navigator, Google Maps. She took me on a rather convoluted drive down some country roads rather than sticking to the main roads. At least the scenery was nice and I did manage to get there.
I walked part way round the stones before having lunch in the pub…
… followed by an excellent guided walk. It’s astounding to think how long these stones have stood here and, like Stonehenge, how much remains.
I especially liked this stone that looks like a giant rabbit.
On the way back I stopped at Silbury Hill, a neolithic, man-made mound which looks a little uncomfortable in its surrounds …
… and West Kennet Long Barrow, the burial place of about 36 people more than 5500 years ago.
Guaranteed I will be back to this area. Four trips in and I still haven’t been to Bath.
