Stonehenge …… amazing day out !!!

Stonehenge

What can I say, a great place to be and so much history… just lost for words. We were on our way to a meeting and drove past Stonehenge so stopped and spent a while just admiring the scenery. Was a busy day and overhearing tourists talking facts and some odd theories about the mysterious monument, but for me was an amazing site.

Once we walked up to the stones it’s only then you realise how large this monument really is and your mind starts to think how this was put together. One of the stones which is known as sarsens, is 9 meters tall, this is nearly the size of a double-decker bus in London, and weighs 25 tonnes.

Hat’s off to English Heritage for all their great work. Will definitely be re-visiting this site in years to come.
