  •  OK, THIS is what you do..... (9+ / 0-)

    ...drive down to the roundabout - rotary, if you must - (through Avebury, heading towards Stonehenge) on the old Bath Road. Make a left turn, which will take you to the Silbury Hill car park (its a PAY & DISPLAY.) Admire Silbury Hill!

    Cross the road, with care (!) and walk past the Hill, until you see a sign for the path to the Barrow. Go along the path (you go immediately past a nice garden with lovely liliacs) cross the stream, and do NOT be discouraged...it is at least another 1/2 mile and just over the ridge, so is out of sight.

    Let me know BEFORE you go!

      The only time we drove on our trip was in Wiltshire. We took the train everywhere. It was certainly interesting to drive along those narrow lanes! Next time, we'll have to do the same, so as to see what we missed.

      Thank your stars you're not that way/Turn your back and walk away/Don't even pause and ask them why/Turn around and say 'goodbye'/Just wish them well.....
