Avebury Things to Do: 52 reviews and 78 photos
The number of houses within the roughly 1400-ft (428-m) wide circle of stones is not very large and they are clustered along the sides of the east-west streets within the circle, while the highways pass through on the north-south axis. Avebury is a typically quaint little English village and the houses are quite picturesque. We parked partially on the side-walk (as is the custom) just to the left of these buildings and then walked up past them to the pub for our meal. This view was taken as we returned to the street from the large open grassed area by the standing stones. Although many of the buildings were of red brick construction, this one has a small building using large stone blocks for a part of it's walls. Could these be from the many standing stones that were broken up many years ago by the locals for use in their fences and walls?
Considering that this is a UNESCO World Heritage site, the crowds were not too bad at all for a Sunday afternoon in mid-December!
