Following on from survey work at Wakehurst Place in East Sussex Wessex Archaeology’s Built Heritage team has also been undertaking survey work at Avebury Manor, a National Trust property in Wiltshire.

This is a fascinating property with a building and gardens dating from the 16th century. Work is currently being undertaken in a number of rooms in the manor to recreate elements of interior design that will reflect the main periods in its long history.

The house is currently closed to the public but it is due to re-open in the autumn.
