I took this one awhile back, it was so cold ( although it doesnt look it ) that I couldnt feel my fingers.
AVEBURY - The Mysterious Stone Circles
Avebury lies in the heart of the Wiltshire Downs just west of Marlborough - the most ancient borough in England. Avebury stone circles are thought to have been constructed in neolithic times between 2500 to 2000 BC.
Avebury is more than just a stone circle - although this is its main feature. There is also a rampart, a ditch and two mysterious avenues. The rampart or bank is on the outside, then comes the ditch. They both have four entrances and enclose some twenty eight acres. Inside these 'circles' - none of the circumferences are perfect, is the stone circle itself. It once consisted of around one hundred unquarried stones; inside this larger circle were once two smaller circles. Only four stones of one of the smaller circles survive, although it is though there may have once been as many as twenty seven. None of the stones in the other small circle are now standing, although is is thought to have consisted of around twenty nine stones at one time.
