I really enjoyed The Clockmakers’s Daughter by Kate Morton and was thrilled to discover that Avebury Manor had been part of the inspiration behind the novel. So having seen Avebury Ring and enjoyed a coffee we went to see the Manor House- sadly it’s closed for you know what, but we did have a good walk round the outside.
Spot the twin gables!
From the side
And the back
Someone is going in!
The dove cote
Just see how many doves there are spaces for
No wonder local people objected to such dove houses- just to feed the Nobilty whilst the doves ate the locals crops.
Finally this lovely row of cottages which must once if not now have been for the estate workers
Hope you liked the tour round the outside- maybe next year I will be able to go inside.
