A few miles outside Avebury you start noticing stones.......surrounded by cows!!!
Yes, I was totally geeking out when I started spying them, totally amazed me how extensive this is and can't imagine the scope of work it took to re-create after people and nature took their toll.
Since there's no entry fee, I highly recommend a stop at The Henge Shop for souvenirs, I ended up spending far more because I didn't feel extorted, lol. Oh, apparently there's a National Trust official shop there too.
There's my gate thing again
Doesn't look too terribly steep
Might wanna reconsider that previous thought
Stones, near and far
Is that not just gorgeous?
Sheep grazing=sheep piles, yep I stepped in one
Yes, there are people who come here to worship with whatever their particular beliefs may be
Didn't realize it at the time but there was another path that you could follow around this section of stones, I missed out on quite a few more
Again my photography "skills" in no way captured the scope and "feel" here but if you visit the UK I do urge you to make this one of your stops. I love the ability to get out and move amongst the stones, even being able to touch them without someone glaring at you and saying "No, that is not allowed!". Just be prepared to do some walking to fully experience it :-)
