THE National Trust admits that a far right group of neo-Nazis is using Avebury to conduct rituals.

A far-right group calling itself Woden’s Folk and promising followers reward in the afterlife if they die in the “struggle for the freedom” has vowed to “take back” ancient locations across England.

Neo-Nazi organisation Combat 18 and the now-banned terror organisation National Action attended one of the group’s rituals at the landmarks.

Garron Helm, the former National Action member jailed for sending anti-Semitic hate messages to MP Luciana Berger, appears masked and holding their flag on its website.

The group calls itself Odinist, the same ancient Norse religion worshipped by terrorists Anders Brevik, who killed 77 people in Norway in 2011, and Brenton Tarrant, who shot dead 51 people in the Christchurch massacre in New Zealand earlier this year.

The National Trust said it was aware that far-right groups had been using Avebury to carry out rituals and had reported all concerns to the police. It promised to increase security at Wayland’s Smithy in Oxfordshire, a Neolithic burial chamber it manages on behalf of English Heritage, where fanatics carved swastikas into trees.

The trust said it did not “condone, support or encourage any non-peaceful, antisocial or illegal activities at any of our places” but it would “not be feasible to fence the stones off " at Avebury to improve safety.

This response followed an undercover investigation by The Daily Telegraph.

The National Trust’s HQ is based in Swindon.
