Ball clay extraction in Dorset. Quarries close to chalk. I seem to remember that this ball clay is predominately kaolinite. Generally associated with the chemical breakdown (meta somatic) of feldspar in granite. As in China clay. This stuff could have been transported and deposited by rivers.
King Alfred's Way is a 350km circular off-road adventure route through 10,000 years of history, connecting some of England’s most iconic sites. The name of the trail is inspired by Alfred the Great, who ruled the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex.
King Alfred's Way starts and ends in Winchester where Alfred is buried, and connects iconic monuments including Stonehenge, Avebury stone circle, Iron Age hill forts, Farnham Castle, and Winchester and Salisbury Cathedrals.
The Clubhouse is the proud home of the Avebury’s cricket, darts and skittles teams, as well as our latest initiative, the Unhenged Coffee Shop! With its unique location, directly adjacent to the largest megalithic stone circle in the world and in the heart of a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the venue is a perfect place to meet during the day or evening, and is also capable of hosting a wide variety of events. Our public car park is open all day every day and with our coffee shop now open daily from 10am to 3pm is a great place for those of you wishing to stop for a light bite and a great cup of coffee before your day out to the famous stone circle.
The original TV series is available here:
It's an excellent programme and there are lots of shots of the stones very close up. It's set in the village. Well worth watching and saving to your computer. Get behind the settee when the funny music starts.
An intelligent, engrossing, well written and well acted series which didn’t assume it’s young audience were stupid and treated them with respect. Today just the opening credits would be enough to attract numerous complaints and get it taken off air.
The series is frequently cited by those who remember it as one of the scariest things they saw as children.
