West Kennet long barrow

twosugars's picture

West Kennet long barrow is not usually as busy as the nearby and very impressive Avebury stone circle, a signposted grassy dirt footpath leads across a field and up a small hill to the barrow.

The chalk downland dries well in summer but wellies or walking boots would be best after rain. the entrance to the barrow is easily found at the eastern end and has been made safe by English Heritage. the short underground passage has a couple of unobtrusive glass panels in the roof, meaning a torch is useful but not essential. i found my tripod to be most useful for the long exposure shots in the underground area.

Walking back to the layby you can also see the ancient artificial Silbury Hill, which is of a similar age to the long barrow. Two nearby pubs serving food, the Red Lion, a thatched country local at Avebury (busy at weekends in the season) and The Wagon and Horses (thatched gastro pub) next to the roundabout on the A4 one mile west of the long barrow.
