Even a cold, wet day couldn’t keep the crowds away. Never seen so many Americans in all my life. Well except those times I visited the US 🙂



  1. A great photo – despite my love of all things Neolithic, I have never had the urge to visit Stonehenge. To me it just seems so ‘commercialised’. There are plenty of other circles (although not admittedly as grand), but just as important – and much less busy!

    1. I agree. And as I’ve said before, I was left feeling very cynical by the massive entrance fee. Still, we were in the area, so we thought we’d check it out. I’d love to be able to get close and touch the stones, but I can also understand that they need to protect them. Seeing it at a distance and as part of a large crowd, I’d didn’t really feel any connection to its history or the magical sense of the place.

      1. I lived in Swindon when I was young, not so far from Stonehenge and it used to be wonderful because you could just walk around them and be amongst . I was very lucky because it felt quite different. They had to protect them though…
