I think a perimeter path further back would create the same sense of alienation from the monument as people feel at Stonehenge. One within touching distance would satisfy a need to be involved with it I'd have thought. To the extent there might even be no need for a fence. Wouldn't that be a revelation!

Totally agree, pointless to put in a perimeter path that still creates a feeling of distance.

When I view Silbury from the road, I get the feeling I want to be nearer.
People can still view from a distance if they prefer, to get the 'classic' view, but I think most would also love to get right up close to it, within touching distance.
I really think it would go a long way to making people feel they don't have to climb it.
