During the recent half-term, we took a short road trip around the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire borders. Our third and final day was spent in Avebury, and unfortunately the weather was back to a mix of mist and drizzle. Would that be mizzle?The standing stones are very much part of the village and apparently they form the largest stone circle in the world. A designated UNESCO World Heritage site, Avebury has been a landscape of fields and farms since the Bronze Age, so you’ll find sheep grazing among the stones.Added sheep. Like Stonehenge, no-one has a definite idea as to the stones’ purpose, but that’s not really the point. What’s curious is how the village has grown up inside the stones. Nowhere else will you find a pub and a chapel inside a stone circle.The village is also home to a manor house (now owned by the National Trust), a museum in the old stables and several beautifully quaint thatched cottages. Pick the right day for the weather and you could easily spend hours just wandering and wondering.
