Avebury Down / Image by thesweetcheat

Thanks, it was such a lovely day for it. Later in the year and I imagine it's quite obscured from this angle. The setting is a nature reserve, so I didn't climb the fence. I surprised myself in that a "private get off my land" sign isn't much of deterrent, but a nice polite notice that says "nature reserve, please don't enter" certainly was :) thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

This is another amazing barrow group, very surprised there were no other pictures on TMA of it close up (especially as people have been to Penning).

Thanks, I like this part of the henge cos it's generally quieter than the western parts. I wonder if the ditch used to fill up when it was much deeper, or whether the water drained straight through the chalk? thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Interesting BBC article with a little underwater archaeology from Neil Oliver finding a Mesolithic site under The Solent.
