Wiltshire Henge Hopper

David Dawson, the Director of the Wiltshire Heritage Museum has obtained funding to run a 'henge hopper' initally for a three month period this summer.

Today a trial run took place - the first part of the tour was to Stonehenge via Marden Henge, the River Avon, Durrington Walls/Woodhenge, Amesbury and Stonehenge. After a break break at Stonehenge the bus took off towards Avebury via the Alton Barnes White Horse, Adam's Grave, Knap Hill, the Lockeridge Sarsen Drift, Overton Round Barrows, the Sanctuary, WKLB, Silbury and of course finishing at Avebury. Then back to Devizes as the ticket cost includes admission to the Wiltshire Heritage Museum. The itinerary will allow for people to leave the bus at various points and be collected later - it is also hoped that two buses will run on the same day to facilitate flexibility.

All in all the tour takes approximately three and half hours not including travelling time to Devizes.

A great initiative for the Wiltshire Heritage Museum.

Apologies to David Dawson for describing him as 'curator' of Wiltshire Heritage Museum. He is in fact the Director - I have amended the above post.
