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

Stunning piece of history, so well preserved. The walk to it is a small incline but easy. Shame someone has removed all the wishes from the oak cloutie tree- it was brimming with them last time I visited. Also a great view of Silbury Hill....More

Somewhat amazed to stumble across this in open countryside, very little fanfare considering how old it is, but how lovely to have it to ourselves on a perfect autumn day! With spectacular views across the Wiltshire countryside, particularly those of Silbury Hill, it's a must-see...More

West Kennet Long Barrow - or any other similar such structural remains - can become the odd many out. England's whole lot of burial grounds is very impressive, so long as not seeing too many of them in too short a space. It's a little...More

This is another must see if you visit North Wiltshire. Just opposite Silbury Hill, it is a lovely walk through beautiful Wiltshire Countryside. Late spring / early summer is a great time to visit, as there are so many wild flowers that grow around. You...More

Imposing stones which give a powerful sense of place and history. Lovely views and not too many people or tour coaches around. I found this a really tranquil place and will certainly return.

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.
