"Avebury - One of the most important megalithic monuments in Europe"


Your guide to Avebury, other ancient sites and stone circles in Britain, with practical information to make your visit easier



Some 2000 years after the first farming community on Windmill Hill, the building of Avebury began. It was the descendants of the Windmill Hill people who created the complex at Avebury, their ancestors having created the long barrow at West Kennet.
There are many suggestions as to why that particular site was chosen but it seems likely that it was for a number of reasons. The area was already well populated, was a lowland plain bounded by the Marlborough downs, along the top of which ran the Ridgeway. With Windmill Hill to the north west, water to the south in the form of the rising River Kennet and in addition important burial sites in the surrounding area, the most notable of which is West Kennet longbarrow, it is hardly surprising that it was ideal.
The Avebury temple was in active use for about 700 years. Towards the end of this period (c.2000BC) began the mammoth task of collecting the huge sarsen stones which were used for the construction of Stonehenge.
By road From London, take the M4 Motorway West bound. At Junction 15 take the exit marked Marlborough. Follow the road until you enter this pretty market town, then take a right turn at the first roundabout. This will take you through the High Street and to another mini-roundabout. Take another right here, and you are on the A4, Bath Road. After some four or five miles you will approach a roundabout, take the third exit, and follow the signs.
