  • Its a large manmade mound built around 2500 BC. Its impressive to see from the A4 road and a must see if you are visiting Avebury. Nothing spectacular really but good to stop by on the way.  more »

  • Nothing to do here but look at a hill. However there's so much more to it. The tallest man made Neolithic mound in Europe just oozes mystique. You can feel the history of nearly 6000 years of existence. The purpose of the hill is still unknown. There's parking on the A4 next to the hill (free) and a short path to a viewing spot. Access to the hill itself is no longer allowed. Go and see it and feel the connection to the past.
  • Anyone with the slightest of interest in Prehistory has. to visit this site and the surrounding landscape
  • Beautiful place to stop and learn some history don't forget the long Barrow over the road
  • It's a man made hill which you are not allowed to walk on and excavations have failed to find out what it was built for.! Avebury village and stone circle as well as west Kennett long barrow are nearby so is interesting to visit as part of a visit to the area especially if you enjoy walking.
  • Fashinating and misterious neolitic monument.
