The West Kennet Avenue runs for an incredible 2.5km. Some burials have been found at the bottom of some of the stones. Aubrey Burl suggests that avenues such as this were built in stretches, over the years, by different generations of the population. There is likely male / female imagery in many of the stone shapes, and their arrangement in relation to one another is probably significant.

Access: The Avenue is close to Avebury village, which is well signposted.
