We’ll be holding our 17th annual gathering for stoney people in the SE quadrant of Avebury Henge (go through the entrance opposite The Red Lion) from midday onwards on Sunday 21st July (or in the Lion if wet). Please bring a chair or a rug, a picnic, books to swap and tall tales of tall stones.

We’ll be close to the old chapel where “Stonekiller” Tom Robinson often worshipped. Public Historian Brian Edwards tells us that Stukeley called Tom “a mallet” for knocking up his wife with their fifth child when she was around 50, forcing him to increase his stone-breaking activities to get enough money to support them all.

Tom has been invited but may not turn up ….
