    In her book ‘Without Knowing Mr Walkley’, Edith Oliver describes coming across a fair in Avebury Stone Circle.  It was 1916 during World War I and was driving her car from Devizes to Marlborough.  Around twilight she stopped at Avebury.

    "And the fair that night brought out this aspect of the place. It looked right. The grand megaliths and the humble cottages alike were partly obscured by the failing light and the falling rain, but both were fitfully lit by flares and torches from booths and shows. Some rather primitive swing-boats flew in and out of this dim circle of light; cocoanuts rolled hairily from the sticks on which they had been planted; bottles were shivered by gun-shots and tinkled as they fell to the ground.  And all the time the little casual crowd of villagers strayed with true Wiltshire indifference from one sight to another, those great stones, the legacy of architects of an unknown race, had succeeded in adapting themselves completely to the village of another day. I stood on the bank for a short time watching the scene; and then I decided that too much rain was falling down the back of my neck, so I got into the car and drove away,"

    Several years later she returned to Avebury and found the alley of stones she remembered was no longer there.  According to a guide book they had not been there for centuries.  She also discovered that the Avebury fair was abolished in 1850, a good 66 years before she saw it.

    Could this be a time slip of some sort?

    I have come across a reference that says Edith Oliver was also lucky enough to witness Lyonesse whilst at Lands End.  Hmmm, I’m not sure what conclusion to draw from this.

    Dear all,

    From personal experience, I can say that the Avebury area does serve as a focus for weirdness.  It is a hotspot, but those who experience the weirdness are selected.  Taking the account at face value, I note that the meaning of ‘Edith Oliver’ is ‘strife for wealth, symbol of peace’.  (Oliver means ‘symbol of peace’, so please consider that Oliver’s castle is a crop circle target) This might have been exceedingly significant in 1916.

    Avebury was the first place that I’d discovered an intelligently controlled dowsing field.  The first crop circle that we ever visited was the scrolls formation (1990) (I found a connection to the Old Testament), just down the road from Avebury.  It is also recorded that there is a relationship between UFOs and unexplained time distortions.

    When we were stationed in England my wife & I visited Avebury on several occasions. Both of us are keenly interested in lay lines, stones, ancient religions & the like.

    At Avebury (unlike Stonehenge) you can actually touch the stones comprising the circle. On practically every visit when my wife touched any of them she said she felt a vibration as if the stone was talking to her through its position on the lay line surrounding the complex.She felt as if she was participating in a very ancient event.I realize this sounds strange to us today but my wife is very attuned to nature and versed in the old ways.
