After months of hard work, the new village shop opened in March 2009.  Thanks are due to the support of the local community, the Steering Group, the National Trust, grant funding providers and all our volunteers!  The community shop is housed in Hope Cottage, on Avebury’s High Street. 

The Upper Kennet News is a free issue magazine produced and distributed by volunteers to the 800+ homes in the upper Kennet valley.

The Henge ShopThe Henge Shop is in a unique location in the centre of Avebury, the largest prehistoric stone circle in the world. This unparalleled setting is the reason we stock the best quality merchandise.   The Henge Shop is not owned or managed by The National Trust or English Heritage and as one of the only independent businesses in the World Heritage site we are free to select our own stock, using fair trade or local suppliers wherever possible.
