Avebury Parish encompasses the historic village of Avebury and its associated settlement of Avebury Trusloe, along with the nearby hamlets of Beckhampton and West Kennett.
The landscape in and around Avebury Parish contains some of the most important surviving prehistoric archaeological monuments in the British Isles. Since its inscription on the World Heritage List, jointly with Stonehenge in 1986, the principal prehistoric sites within this landscape have been universally acknowledged as of international cultural significance.
The whole Parish is in the World Heritage Site and also in the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, lying near the edge of the Marlborough Downs. In addition parts of the Parish have been designated Conservation Areas.
