Avebury’s past to be on TV

Last week the team visited various locations in the county for the Wiltshire episode of the series, which looks at some of Britain’s most historic landscapes.

Other areas visited in Wiltshire included Devizes, Silbury Hill, the Kennet long barrows and Stonehenge.

Photographer Nicola Salt from Cadley was at the Avebury stones when the filming took place.

She said: “I spoke to someone from the production team and they said they’d really enjoyed the visit. It’s great to see Wiltshire get the recognition it deserves – when you live here you don’t appreciate how lucky you are.”

The award acknowledges customer satisfaction of 90 per cent or over, based on feedback from those visiting the ancient stones.

Peter Carson, head of Stonehenge for English Heritage, said: “We are so thrilled to have received this award given our current limited facilities, and therefore it is a real pat on the back for the high standards of service offered by our team to our customers.

With the completion of our new visitor facilities just a few months away we will be able to offer an even better welcome in the future.”
