FAC simile of John AubREY's GENERAL PLAN of AVEBURY in WLT SHIRE including the AVENUE of STONES leading to the circles on seven Barrow(now Overton) Hill
Fac-similes of Aubrey's Plans of Abury. 227
ircles cannot have been written many years later than that by Aubrey. (See Wilts Magazine, vol. vi. p. 328.)
“On Seven burrowes Hill, 4 miles west of Marleburrow near Iondon way, are 40 great stones, sometimes standing, but now ying in a large circle, inclosing an inner circle of 16 great stones, ow lying also ; testified to be an old British Trophie by the Anglo}ritish name thereof, (viz.) Seaven Burrowes, and by those 7 huge urrowes very near it with fragments of men's bones.” This xtract shows that West Kennet or Overton Hill was, in the 17th entury, known as Seven-Barrow Hill—a name now disused. It lso explains the title which has been appended to Plate II.
It remains only to add to Mr. Long's Paper on Abury, the folSwing Corrigenda, which were privately printed by him soon after s publication; but have not hitherto appeared in this Magazine.
Vol. iv. page 324, line 22.-‘‘I have erred in supposing that there ere any impressions of Mr. Crocker's survey of 1812, with stones arked upon them which were erased from the plate before the ublication of the second volume of Sir R. C. Hoare's “ North Wilts,” in 1819. The fact, however, remains, that stones were und in the garden, pointed out by Mr. Lawrence Chivers.
Page 325, line 3.—The stone here spoken of as erect, although uch reduced in size, and which is that next to the stone marked g | Sir R. Hoare's plan, is in fact a large, unbroken, and recumbent one (and is so marked on Stukeley’s ground plot), and the portion love ground is merely a spur of its base. In the table at page 326, have reckoned it among the stones which are erect; but it should ave been numbered among those that have fallen: and, in that use, the numbers of those standing in the Northern outer circle, in tukeley’s time, would be 3; in 1819, 3 instead of 4; and in 857, 2 instead of 3; and the number recumbent in 1857, would e 13 instead of 12. Page 326.-Cancel the second note at the bottom of the page.”
