hope life is finding you all well
Apologies for my absence of late, I'm doing the three peak challenge in August, so out walking almost constantly to get some semblance of fitness!!
I went away to Centre Parcs last week & escaped to Avebury on Thursday.
Away from the more obvious Stones there, in the backfield you will find these huge sarsens.
There is a theory that the diamond shaped stones represent the "female " & the upright stones (for more obvious reasons) represent the male.
In this instance, the two main sarsens almost look to be in conversation with each other from certain angles!

Anyone with an interest in Avebury, Alexander Keiller,Archaeology, or paganism, could do a lot worse than read the time slip novel "The Buried Circle".... in fact, I;d highly recommend doing so...an excellent and informative read.
Take care everyone, I'm at STONEHENGE for the SPRING EQUINOX on Tuesday & Wednesday, so catch up later in the week
