Between September 2007 and January 2008, Oxford Archaeology (OA) carried out an archaeological watching brief on land between Broad Hinton (NGR: SU 105 769) and Avebury (NGR: SU 097 699) in Wiltshire. The work was commissioned by Scottish and Southern Energy Plc (SSE)in advance of the burial of overhead power lines. The watching brief revealed examples of earlier field boundaries, chalk and clay quarry pits, 2 hollow ways and a possible trackway and several pits. All the datable archaeological features relate to the post-medieval period. No evidence for continuations of the stone circle or processional avenues north of Avebury was observed.
