Revisit. Driven up by the NT for a meeting with NT and HE representatives regarding burrowing animals.Herbert Anchovy20/05/2019
Parked to the east on White HorseTrail. Just about enough room next to main road. Quite atmospheric. No Druids, Just friendly sheep.Campbell Singer13/12/2018
1st top of 3 on a 16 mile circular from Berwick Bassett with Lesley, visiting both large mounds and natural high point and then following the White Horse trail into Avebury to wander around the stones then food in the huge barn followed by a look around the museum before walking past the Sarsen stones on the Stone avenue, heading for Waden Hill.. .Dazingdale22/09/2018

A World Heritage Site Tump. Gentle walk up the byway from the south with the children, prior to a day at Avebury and Stonehenge. Summit a Bronze Age round barrow with a ring ditch.Herbert Anchovy20/04/2017
Area 39 completed for the third time.andrew brown20/04/2017
An exciting day indeed, a visit from Avebury and a crude survey agreed with the 1:25,000 mapped data suggesting that Windmill Hill had a good possibility of being an unrecognised TUMP. A grassy levellish top with conical mound and good views.RichardM31/03/2017
interesting ancient tumuli, plus the excitement that it could be a tump!Denise 31/03/2017
Near actual date. From Avebury. Solo.Pete West20/02/2014
Visited this hill top many times in the past when lived in Swindon. This is the earliest date I can be 100% sure of. Love this hill - pre-historcially fascinating, great views of the Ridgeway and surrounding downland and just far enough walk from car parks to ensure it is never busy.Hillsidenick18/12/2011
On a very cold a frosty morning, first visit to Avebury.thesweetcheat07/12/2008
Lovely little hill with bags of history. May have been up here earlier but this date is earliest I have a GPS track log for. Large tumulus at summit.jonglew25/02/2007
