Stone 35a, West Kennet Avenue (September 2016)   

"It is likely that woodland framed the Avebury monuments and that the stone avenues originally passed between and under trees" - Mann, p254

"Prehistoric circles ... had avenues of stones that led downhill to water" - Marija Gimbutas in
"The Language Of The Goddess", p311

"Yet archaeological surveys of Stonehenge and Avebury have concluded that few people, if any, walked the actual avenues ............ In a monument where funerary rights were performed, an avenue may have functioned as a 'river of souls' like the river Styx - a route for the souls of the dead to travel to the Otherworld, as symbolised by a marsh" - Marshall, p100
