The Avenue

Ancient Trackway

The Avenue (Ancient Trackway) by UncleRob Riverside excavations 2008: just at the top of the rise near the end of the Avenue where Stonehenge suddenly appears is a point where some of the carving and shaping of the stones took place. A shallow dig found scattered sarsen and bluestone fragments on the surface of the chalk & flint "bedrock". Intriguing that both types of standing stones were worked here with such a long time gap between them. The bluestone is on the left and two sarsen chunks on the right.
