Geocache Description:

Silbury Hill is the biggest man-made hill in Europe and was built 4,600 years ago. This virtual cache is easily accessible and has it's own car park.

Silbury Hill is the largest manmade hill in Europe. It was constructed 4600 years ago, used by the Romans as a marker to construct their road (now the A4) and then as a hillfort by the Saxons. It is now a Scheduled Ancient Monument within the World Heritage Area of Avebury.

Please respect the history of this location when you visit and follow this code of practice. In particular, climbing this hill is forbidden because it is unstable and climbing it causes damage.
