STONEHENGE

DSCF5976

On a short break back in July we managed a long-overdue visit to Stonehenge. We went early, beating most of the crowds that thronged the visitor centre and ferry-busses later in the day. It was chilly and murky, but the walkway around the ancient site gave the impressive iconic view (above) although the path is closer to the stones at the far side (below) whilst keeping the immediate area directly around the site protected. Strangely it isn’t as big as I had imagined, but impressive nontheless. English Heritage have done an excellent job with their new visitor centre (the 360 degree all-seasons panorama well worth seeing) and in maintaining and running this World Heritage Site. And for us the bonus was free entry as we are English Heritage members!
