AN HISTORIC LANDSCAPE

As it was such a lovely day here, we went for a long walk round the Avebury landscape in Wiltshire. Parking at the Sanctuary we walked along the Ridgeway towards Avebury, skirted the village and back up towards Fyfield Down. Mrs. Atticus snapped up taking a break overlooking Windmill Hill on the path up out of the village.
Although I have always lived in Somerset, I always get the feeling I am coming home when we go across the border to Wiltshire. A move might be in order one day.

  1. Long time since I visited the area , think I like Avebury better than Stonehenge.

  2. Me too, and it's free to get in. Mind you it gets so busy nowadays we tend to lurk round the edges to avoid crowds.

  3. Looks a lovely walk. I haven’t been for ages. It is a splendid part of the country. I was most taken with the Avebury museum and the tales of the archaeologist who seemed like a fascinating character. Avebury manor (?) is a beautiful house. I know what you mean re Stonehenge.

    1. Yes, Alexander Keiller was a very odd cove. Worth reading his mini biography, A Zest for Life. People still have very strong feelings about him round Avebury today!
