  • Lockeridge Dene is an unusual and quiet spot just off the A4. It’s well worth a stop off if you’re passing and have any interest in history or geology. There is road site parking next to the gate...

  • Beautiful part of Wiltshire between Avebury and Marlborough. Pretty much the very picture of an English village harbouring a tiny part of a national treasure. Littered about as though forgotten remnants of ancient sarsen stone that dot the monuments of this part of the landscape of the country. Lockeridge itself is also home to the 'who'd a thought it' pub and close to Silbury Hill and West Kennet long barrow. If you like ancient history up close you can't go wrong in this part of the world.
  • It's a nice place, especially the village of lockeridge. It's more of a pitstop though. I believe you can walk from the dene to the longbarrows.
