Avebury has been nominated as a Heritage Site of the Year in the BBC Countryfile Magazine awards 2014/15.
The ancient monument is one of five sites across the UK nominated for the prestigious award, with stiff competition in the form of the Imperial War Museum in Cambridgeshire, the Severn Valley Railway in Worcestershire, Kew Palace in Surrey, and Portmeirion in North Wales.
The judges write: “Often overlooked by neighbouring Stonehenge, the stone circle at Avebury is all the more tangible because it is readily accessible.
“Here you can marvel at a prehistoric world that’s as mysterious as it is beautiful and explore the wider landscape and component sites such as Silbury Hill, the Sanctuary and West Kennet long barrow.”
