Stonehenge

Stonehenge….
 
A large quantity of very large, very heavy rocks that are believed to have come from South Wales and placed on top of each other many many miles away in Wiltshire.
 
A prehistoric monument.
 
A temple for sun worship, a healing centre, a burial site or perhaps a huge calendar.
 
One of the most famous sites in the world.
 
A world Heritage Site.
 
Surrounded by mystery, Stonehenge never fails to impress.
 
This is our visit on a very very windy September morning.
 

Linking up with Coombe Mill for Country Kids.

    Wonderful photographs – I love the heavy sky with stones below, very atmospheric. It’s somewhere I’ve never been, but would love to go!

    I went there once when I was very young – what an amazing place. Must go back with the kids

    It is a dramatic place to visit. They used to open it up on Sundays in the winter months, so you could go up to the stones. Now you have to wait for the Summer Solstice. Along with everyone else.

    It might have been windy but the sun was certainly out! Lovely pictures of both the stones and your family, it’s such a fantastic place to visit. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

    This is one of those places I remember being massive as a child, I was rather disappointed when we took Monkey last year – it seemed so much smaller than my memory suggested. Still amazing though #CountryKids

    Beautiful photos. It’s somewhere I’ve yet to visit, but I’ll definitely get there one day – looks like you all enjoyed your time there.

    I’d love to visit one day, but so far I’ve only been past in the car (once).

    Can’t beat a bit of Stonehenge! I’ve been up there for summer Solstice a few times… that was an experience! There’s something a bit eerie about it isn’t there.
