APRIL PUZZLE.

The Red Lion at Avebury is famous for being the world’s only pub standing inside a stone circle but there’s another pub with an even better boast – it has a group of megaliths standing in its garden (see above). They’ve been scheduled for 135 years, as long as Stonehenge and Avebury and they’ve been standing there a thousand years longer.

What they were used for is a mystery but Historic England’s List Entry Summary helpfully suggests they may have had a “ritual purpose”. More convincingly, it’s said that a nearby village was the site of Camelot and that a sword was seen in a stone near to there. So …..  name those stones – and more to the point, name that pub!
