|A broken pediment, my first introduction|
There are other things to find at Avebury, one of course is the Manor House, this particular view of it is my favourite. To be truthful I do not visit National Trust properties, I find it an expensive use of time, though I will love the gardens. Many, many years ago I did visit and all I can remember was a cheap coverlet on one of the four poster beds. Paul's brother worked here as a volunteer and that is all I know about the place.

The land and the buildings passed through several hands but originally it was a small Benedictine priory belonging to a larger French mother house. And it turned into the rather beautiful house above. Crafted loveliness in my opinion.
