  • There's a parking area right nearby with an information board detailing its history. Very impressive and well worth the stop if on the way to somewhere else. About 20 years ago, my husband friends cli...  more »

  • 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 »

  • This is a 5 minute stop but worth the diversion to see an impressive man-made historical structure. The nearby sign describes an interesting history and its a real shame you can't get up close or climb to the top. Don't make a special trip here, but do swing in if you're passing.
  • Beautiful place, I lived a mile or so away from here when I was younger and then you were still able to climb to the top of the hill and see the incredible views from all points of the compass. Considering it is man made it is an amazing feat of construction. Well worth a visit
  • Couldn't get close enough to get a proper look at such an interesting site. Just a car layby with a small sign. Typical of the corporate charities in that if they can't profit from something they neglect it
  • Visited purely to claim a virtual Geocache for a hobby. Very interesting here, worth a visit and a wonder around. We took a picnic, and made a day visiting local attractions. Although no activities for little ones interesting history
  • Large historic mound....can climb to the top but not officially permitted
