Stop At: West Kennet Long Barrow, Avebury SN8 1QH England

Visit the inside of an old Neolithic burial mound, built by the civlisation that created Avebury (and Stonehenge). Please note that the Long Barrow is 10-15 minutes walk up a steep hill. It is largely unvisited but access may not be possible in the wet/mud or recommended for people with poor mobility or ill-health.
