Marlborough Mound

Artificial Mound


I visited this mound yesterday on my way back from Avebury after the solstice celebrations.

As it was a Sunday, I drove straight through the main college gateway, parked in the central area and asked a student for directions. I was told to go down a small flight of steps which led behind the canteen....and there it loomed before me.

Hemmed in behind the backs of buildings, overgrown with trees, yet quiet and peaceful because of it.

You have to climb this mound to fully appreciate it and there are steps on the opposite side.
