taken 1 year ago, near to Avebury Trusloe, Wiltshire, Great Britain

Silbury Hill from Waden Hill
Silbury Hill from Waden Hill
View south-west from the permissive path which starts near a lay-by along the West Kennett Avenue. Unseen in the picture, the River Kennet flows north-south in the dip between the hill and the camera. The road passing close to the far side of the hill is the A4 - the old Bath Road (which follows a Roman alignment).

What little is known about Silbury has been summarised by Stephen Richards, who also contributes a particularly good shot of the hill from an entirely different angle: LinkExternal link

The photo was taken just as a long spell of dry weather was giving way to a much rainier spell - so I hope that people got their hay in in time.
