Maybe, but would take some detective work to find out, if records do exsist. What date is the church? Pewsey church has got sarsen stones as foundations. Anyway it is a miracle so much of avebury survived.


Your post also made me consider the amount of 'upkeep' the Complex would have required when it was in 'use' hedgeling. It must have been a 24/7 job keeping it up together. IF the bank and ditch around the Great Circle and Silbury were purposely kept as chalk and green free as some believe, that alone must have been an ongoing job for sure.
