[quote="Sanctuary"]I would like to ask an 'Avebury' question. In the Alexander Keiller Museum it says that one of the worst offenders for smashing up the stones was someone from Berwick Bassett and I noticed on my last walk that the church at Berwick Bassett is built of sarsen. Does anyone know know if these were Avebury stones?

I think this is perhaps a reference to Caleb Baily, own of BB manor, but the sarsen nave there was constructed centuries prior to the birth of any of the named stone breakers.
