Post dating the Keiller erection of the avenue stones but the earliest mention of the myth I can come up with .

" The avenue at Avebury consists of stones in pairs , which have been roughly dressed on the sides which face one another . One stone is always long and thin and the other short and almond shaped , obviously the male and female principles . "
Gerald Gardner “The Meaning of Witchcraft “ 1959 p 29.

Some "good" bits about Stonehenge too , which he describes as a "fertility temple "probably built by Egyptians masons .
