  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Went for a walk here for the first time and it was very nice, would have given 5* if you were allowed to climb the hill.
  • Free to visit and although you cant walk up it you get some good views from quite close by. A good car park, easy to find as its right by the road. Very beautiful place!
  • It is what you see in the pics. A mound. It is worth a look about the area as well
