St James' Church - Avebury

A very pretty little lichen covered church, now very much part of the charm of Avebury. The oldest part of the building is Anglo-Saxon and dated around 1000AD. The Avebury Circle, however, is thought to be 4500 years old making the setting for this particular church unique. The churchyard is surrounded by a rookery, which on a still, quiet morning gives a slightly eerie atmosphere to the place.
