Our National Trust shop at Avebury has just been refurbished and this year we're also really proud to offer the 'Sutton Lane Meadows' range, including bags and scarves. Why not pop in and have a look at our exciting new products?
The Sutton Lane Meadows range
The designs for these products are inspired by some traditional wildflower-rich hay meadows near Chippenham that our Wiltshire team look after.
Sutton Lane Meadows consist of three enclosed fields of exceptionally species-rich, unimproved, neutral grassland, managed as traditional hay meadows, near Chippenham. Wildflower meadows have been declining in the UK so we're delighted that with its fantastic population of green-winged and southern marsh orchids, Sutton Lane Meadows is one of the best meadow sites in Wiltshire.
Gifts and souvenirs
Whether you're looking for a souvenir to remind you of your visit to Avebury, a gift for a friend or just a treat for yourself, we have a wide range of items for you to choose from. We also stock products featuring illustrations by local artist Anna Dillon, such as mugs, notepads, coasters and fridge magnets.
Throughout the summer we'll be offering retail experiences, such as 'meet the author', Barbara Townsend, who's written two children's books based around Avebury and Stonehenge, 'make your own bath bombs' by Bliss Botanicals using locally grown herbs and flowers and 'mead tasting' by a local distiller.
We also sell beautiful products, lovingly made by local artists like silver jewellery designed by Tracey Sugg, ceramics by Libby Ballard and beautiful hand carved wooden bowls and bangles by Bob Sawyer.
We have an extensive bookshop which guarantees you a good read, from text books about Avebury (including Exploring Avebury by Steve Marshall) to folklore and walking guides. Don't forget to visit our second-hand bookshop, Cobblestones, on the High Street.
We look forward to welcoming you to our shop soon.
All the profits from this shop go directly towards caring for Avebury World Heritage Site. Helping us to look after the monuments, keep pathways clear, maintain gates and stiles and look after the conservation of the natural environment so that it continues to support the wildlife that lives here.
