'Oh' said the lady in quite a dismissive tone 'you do realise you are ONLY allowed in the museum and NOT the manor house with THIS'. I thanked her and said I did know and that I only wanted to visit the museum!

'With great power comes great responsibility' - as someone was once told :)

Well sometimes it is understandable when a volunteer defends the place they are in charge of... I find 'rottwheilers' inhabit TMA as well in the protection of THEIR monuments ;) Anyway Jones of the Guardian loves Avebury (and gets on the bus tjj), so a good stout defence from him...[...]ebury-why-bill-bryson-is-wrong
