The West Kennet Long Barrow is a Neolithic tomb dating back to 3650 BC and is thus the oldest building in England. The inside tunnels were used as pagan burial chambers and are built from Saracen rock as seen on the exterior.
Enclosed in Stone: Roughly 10 feet high and up to 18 feet wide, these are some of the largest prehistoric walls ever found in Britain. Outdoor Rituals Evidence suggests people didn’t live here year-round but visited periodically, perhaps to make offerings as part of a ritual procession through the site and its many buildings.
