‪The sarsens or grey wethers are large grey stones laid down in the Ice Age 30 million years ago. As such they are interesting to look at and to experience so many of them in situ. We expected the site to be much larger from descriptions here and elsewhere. However it takes less than 30 minutes to walk around the entire site, taking as many deviations as possible, much to the chagrin of our dog, who was expecting a much lengthier outing.‬

‪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, though the site itself wouldn’t be suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

In summer, there are cattle grazing here, but in winter the fenced field is empty and you can follow the former riverbed full of tall grasses and enjoy the magic of the stones against a backdrop of thatched cottages and misty hillside.

The sarsen stones are 30 million years old and are the building material used for Stonehenge and Avebury.

There’s no admission charge or facilities here (though there are nearby pubs), just beautiful, unspoilt countryside. ‬

‪Walking back to the car from the Devil's Den (separate review), i stumbled upon the National Trust property of Piggledene and Lockeridge Dene - both sheltered valleys containing well developed 'boulder streams' of sarsen stones, covered in moss and lichen.
Piggledene is situated next to the A4, between Avebury and Marlborough - though please note that there is no parking - but i'd parked in the village approx. 1/2 a mile away. The Lockeridge Dene site is approx. 1/2 mile south of Piggledene in the village of Lockeridge where there are lots of safe areas to park.
The National Trust brought them over 100 years ago to preserve one of the last areas of unspoilt bolder fields left from the areas glaciation, during the last iceage.
Simply stunning, and well worth the effort to explore and walk there.
This really does put the Avebury area to shame - this is how Avebury and the area should have been preserved for future generations!‬
