Silbury hill has to be seen to be believed. Close to Avebury you seriously can't miss it as it rises from the landscape. Walk to the top and see the view!

Never knew about this hill but when I read about its background, wow! See it both from the distance (from the Kennett Long Barrow) and from the bottom to get two different perspectives.

The hill itself is impressive but it's the scenery around it that impresses most, great way to spend an afternoon with the camera. Was hoping to see some larger birds, but there wasn't much wind. Did get close to some deer though.

Amazing feat for prehistoric man to build a hill with minimal tools and ability to move large amounts of dirt. In the end you are left wondering "Why?" but in the absence of an answer remain amazed by their long term dedication to the cause.
