|Excellent pic. Are the little stone walls imbetween the megaliths a recent addition to stop children from crawling into the holes and getting stuck?|
|Answering my own question again: had a look in a comprehensive English Heritage book called "Avebury" and it turns out that the little stone infills are modern replacements for the original stone that had been weathered by the chemical action of rainwater over the centuries.|
