Avebury - The Sanctuary - West Kennet - Silbury Hill - Avebury

Starting at the Avebury stone circle, the walk takes you along the stone avenue and up to the Ridgeway, with spectacular Wiltshire views of 'hedgehogs' and curious burial mounds. 

The route then takes you to visit The Sanctuary, yet another ancient site, then through lush farmland to see the famous West Kennet Long Barrow. You then return to Avebury via the amazing man-made Silbury Hill (carbon dating suggests that Silbury Hill was built around 2,500BC, making it an extraordinary feat for its time).

Try the Avebury - West Kennet - Silbury Hill - Avebury walk out on the FREE WalkExplorer app for iPhone. This walk will be on the Android app soon.
