6 7 If you draw a line from the western tip of our island to the eastern point then you will discover that Avebury is near the centre of that line. The line known as the Michael line passes through a number of ancient sacred sites, St. Michaels Mount, for instance, and the Hurlers Stone Circles on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall. The two longest abbeys ever built in the British Isles, at Glastonbury and Bury St. Edmunds, both lie on it. The ancient Ridgeway path, which runs northeast from Avebury, and the Icknield Way, home to Ivanhoe Beacon and the Gog Magog hills in the east, also form parts of the line. The line marks the sunrise for Beltane May Day and Lammas, and the sunset for Imbolc and Samhain. These four special days lie halfway between the Solstices and the Equinoxes, the days of extremes and balancing. Thus if you watch the sunrise from Glastonbury Tor on May Day, it will rise over Avebury. Avebury is also precisely at the centre of the three great watersheds of southern England. Water drains away from Avebury in every direction to the sea. The Isle of Man is the ancient centre of the whole of the British Isles, circles centred there do interesting things. The CenTre of The Isle Avebury as the centre of the Michael line Avebury is situated at the centrepoint of the sacred EastWest axis of the Island, precisely one seventh of a circle up from Earths equator. It is one of the earliest stone circles, and the most complex. Like the Great Pyramid, built at the same time, it appears at the start of its era, its technology and cosmology fully formed, and never equalled after.
