Avebury The Essential
Avebury and its surrounding district are less renowned than Stonehenge, but are however rich in prehistoric monuments and structures, the oldest of which date from about 3700 to 3500 BC. Avebury's site is all the more fascinating because the present village is located at the centre of a stone circle, inside earthen "ramparts". The village church offers an interesting mixture of Anglo-Saxon, Romanesque, Gothic Perpendicular and 19C styles.
