Marlborough Downs

Saturday 13th March (end 8th week)

There are still places available on this trip
(Contact the trip organiser for more details)

Just to the south of the Marlborough Downs sits Avebury stone circle, one of the largest in Europe, within a remarkable prehistoric landscape. We are hoping to take in as many of the archaeological sites as possible – before heading up onto the Downs and admiring the views and the source of the standing stones. So, prepare to enter burial chambers, marvel at a man-made mound reaching 40m in height, hug a stone or thirty and stretch your legs to blow away 4000 years of accumulated cobwebs!
