Visiting Stonehenge...

Olly, Candace and I drove through to Wiltshire, one of the surrounding counties, to visit the site of Stonehenge early on Wednesday, 5th December. It was fantastic to see this ancient monument and to listen to the audio guide, although there were no real answers to the pressing questions: How Stonehenge was built, and what it was used for. It was another great day in the freezing cold of the English winter!

 Stonehenge is located on Salisbury Plain.
 There are many ancient burial sites, called barrows, in the surrounding countryside.
A Westland Lynx helicopter flies past, heading towards Yeovil. There is a large Westland helicopter factory there.
