The Ghostly Fair
There hasn't been a fair at Avebury for over 50 years... only the ghostly fair...
Edith Olivier, the Wiltshire writer who spent much of her life in the county, wrote about a particularly evocative experience that she witnessed for herself while travelling through Avebury.
In the early part of the twentieth century, Miss Olivier was driving through the stone circle when she became aware of a fair being held amongst the stones.
She later discovered that there hadn't been a fair of this kind in Avebury for over fifty years.
What exactly had Miss Olivier seen?
