Description
Avebury Manor & Garden

16th-century manor house with lovely Edwardian garden

A much-altered house of monastic origin, the present buildings date from the early 16th century, with notable Queen Anne alterations and Edwardian renovation. The garden was completely redesigned in the early 20th century by Colonel and Mrs Jenner. The topiary and other formal gardens are contained within walls and ancient clipped box, creating numerous 'rooms'. Some features may be survivals of the original priory precinct
