Well worth popping into this very old church with its mixture of style over the centuries. The weekend we were there. there were refreshments and snacks on sale inside the church. This is an essential part of a visit to Avebury.

The graveyard is very old and has some really interesting headstones. The church is also very nice to view and provides a great backdrop for the whole stone complex.
