River Kennet between Avebury and Silbury Hill
River Kennet between Avebury and Silbury Hill
The muddy bridleway from Avebury to the Silbury Hill car park runs along the eastern bank of the River Kennet, which is a large stream at this point. The shady side of Silbury Hill can be seen across the water meadow and the West Kennett long barrow is visible as a long dark shadow on the ridge in the distance, towards the left of the photo. The Ordnance Survey map labels the river as ending in a single "t" (Kennet) whereas the surrounding placenames that incorporate the name end in a double "t" (West Kennett).
