It’s Not About the Weather
A Grey Wether is the Wiltshire name for our iconic Sarsen Stones, not to be confused with an example of dreary winter weather. They earned their name because from a distance, they look like a flock of grazing sheep, known locally as wethers.
Since the Neolithic period, man has used Sarsen Stones for buildings and to form well-known landmarks such as Stonehenge and Avebury Circle. You can see the best example of unchanged Sarsen Stones at Fyfield Down, home to hundreds of these Wiltshire wonders.
