More Stones Than You Can Throw A Stick At!

14 Oct

Husb and I are away for a few days visiting on the East Coast but we called in to Avebury on the way to see the ancient standing stones. We have been meaning to go for years and finally made it. It was a revelation!  We’re used to tramping wild places in Wales and seeing a single stone or one chambered grave, but Avebury has more stones than you can shake a stick at. And the whole complex nestles in a delightful village with thatched cottages, a fine manor and imposing barns. Terrific place.  Normally, I have one stone to draw so I spend some time choosing the best angle.  At Avebury I had to run around choosing from loads of stones, all huge, imposing and worthy of attention.  We didn’t have enough time to get around the whole site, so we’ll have to go back.
