Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

West Kennet Long Barrow - revisited

West Kennet Long Barrow - revisited

The last day of our recent trip to the UK my husband decided to take off work so we could get a little bit more adventuring in.  We had been in London so rented a car from Heathrow and hit the road long before dawn - so we could make it out here in time.

The clouds were in full force when we first got there - but there wasn't another soul.  We walked all around Avebury and Avebury Stone Row, all the while plagued with clouds.  We actually came here first but with no sun in sight, roamed around all those other places hoping for a break.

But we did get a break of course and rambled back up to the barrow.  It turned into a beautiful few minutes, the eastern morning sun shining directly on the entrance.  You can spy Silbury Hill off in the distance to the right :)
