Silbury Hill

Like Stonehenge, Silbury Hill is an enigma. Built in around 2500BC, no one has been able to pinpoint its original purpose. It is the biggest man-made mound in Europe, measuring 130ft high and 100ft across its flat top. The hill is built from local soil and rock and because of its fragility, visitors are prevented from climbing or walking on it.
