Little Avebury

Stone Circle


According to Pete G (a local),

"The pillar with the head is a carving by local artist Jane (Can't remember her last name) she used to live north of Avebury and had them in her garden but recently moved over to West Kennet."

About 'Little Avebury' he has this to report:

"This a natural drift of sarcens in the valley floor. On top of Thorne hill is Langdean circle. There is much debate if it is a true stone circle. Meaden ('Secret of the Avebury Stones') claims it is while Burl ('Prehistoric Avebury') thinks it is a ruined round house. I have been there before a few times and tend to think it is a circle with a cove in the middle. The smaller circle nearby is a collection of field clearance stones."
