My wife and I visited London during the Fall of 2013 and one day signed up for an all-day bus tour to Stonehenge, Glastonbury and Avebury. Over the years I have posted several photos and stories about our Stonehenge (see here and here) and Glastonbury (see here and here and here and here) adventures but until now have neglected any mention of Avebury. So for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I have decided to show a portion of the stone circles of Avebury that are much larger than the more famous Stonehenge monument twenty miles away.
Click on the photo to see a larger version of the photo.
Stonehenge is roped off and you can get only so close but at Avebury you can walk right up and touch the stones. No one minds if you walk along the sheep, either, as long as you close the gates behind you!
