Quite a pleasant one to walk round. Only mildly infested by hippies. Sheep are pretty affable. Village shop handily located for ice creams and not as self consciously worthy as the national trust cafe. NT second hand bookshop worth a visit

Another lockdown over and we decided to have a day out, on what was a mostly sunny day but with temperatures lowered by cold northerly wind. We wanted to avoid too many crowds so we decided to go on a Friday rather than wait until the weekend. So we set-off late morning and arrived after a leisurely drive of about an hour, keeping to country roads rather than major A and M ways. Avebury is the home of the largest Neolithic stone circle in the world, there are actually 3 circles: two smaller (322ft/98mtrs and 354ft/108mtrs) inner circles (almost forming a figure 8), surrounded by a much larger outer circle (1088ft/332mtrs). The village sits across the two inner circles and the A4361 (from the A4 at Beckhampton to Swindon) runs between the two inner circles and bisects the Northern Inner Circle. There is a public house that too sits between the inner circles. There are s few shops and the usual amenities. Avebury Manor is a National Trust property and this is part of the National Trust complex at Avebury that encompasses a museum and The Circle Café. The management of the circles is basically operated by the National Trust. The circles are however open / free access, but the carpark is operated by the National Trust. It costs £7 to use it: unless you arrive after 15:00 when it is only £4 (but that’s a bit late to start exploring). There is scant carparking in the village, and although a central carpark is shown on most maps I suspect that it belongs to the pub, and the pub owners would probably be less than pleased if you were to fly-park. It is a pleasant 10 minute stroll via a network of pavements from the National Trust carpark (situated off the Beckhampton side of the A4361) into the village centre. We made straight for The Barn (also known as ‘The Great Barn’ which is in fact the National Trust museum in the centre of the town (near St James’ Church) to pay for the carparking. The meters on the carpark take coins only and the phone payments didn’t work as there was insufficient phone signal. This needs sorting, and so does the woeful signage to ‘The Barn’. After paying our £7 we decided we would like a hot drink and snack at the Circles Café (see my review). Once that was done we than walked around the two inner circles for a couple of hours. It was a pleasant afternoon and we enjoyed the freedom on movement but you still need to wear masks at the moment. There were signs on some pavements asking people to wear masks, but as usual there were people who just don’t ‘get it’. The stones range in size from small ones that you would find ideal to lace-up a boot to those that were, I would estimate, 20ft tall. There are over 200 stones in total I was told and the larger ones weighed about 40 tons: so these stones were certainly not rolling. It was awe inspiring to see them up-close and touch them, which you can do. It was a very pleasant visit and the weather stayed dry and the sun was warm, but the wind at times was particularly cold.

If you can get a quieter day this wonderful rind is incredibly serene and calming. Do not miss Elements with its fabulous array of crystals and the funky new age items.

Avebury is brilliant makes Stonehenge look second class. Good pub and eateries in the village. The only drawback is that the National Trust charge £7 for the car park no matter how long you stay, for an all day visit perhaps but for a couple of hours..... That aside still worth the visit.
