SILBURY PANORAMA
 
(ABOVE) From overhead the West Kennet Longbarrow ( out of view directly below)  Silbury Hill (1) dominates this Wiltshire aerial landscape photographed in late June 1998.  The River Kennet is still a dribble (2) as it passes west of Avebury ( just out of picture, top right) and then beneath the A4 Bath road (3) before turning east (4) having been given a boost by the Swallowhead Spring (7) on its 50 mile journey to join the River Thames at Reading.   Crop formations still visible are the Beltane Wheel (5) and the Dragon (6) soon to be slain by John Deere.
 

(BELOW) Early August 1998. The same location viewed from the opposite direction. Avebury Circle and West  Kennet Avenue extend across the centre of the picture surrounded by  recent crop formations (8).
