Oh I do like WKLB. Even better if there's no-one else but you (and your friends as applicable) there. Connect with the land and the ancestors. Drum and feel the energies of the place.
Sit outside (or on top) and look at the rise and...More
A great place to visit. Over 5500 years old and in great condition considering the age. Make sure you take a torch as you can go inside and it's dark ofcourse. Parking is minimal in 2 lay byes on the main road but we had...More

West Kennet Long Barrow is one of the best Iron Age burial grounds in the UK. The whole area is riddled with historic sites, and this is one of the best. The walk is a fair distance and would require good footwear in winter
A short walk from layby on Old A4, with great views all around, including Silbury Hill. Pathway is quite flat with slight incline to the barrow. Interesting that you can enter and go into part of the chamber.
