Visiting Stonehenge.

Stonehenge 5

Me at Stonehenge

Stonehenge 4

Gary and I went to Stonehenge yesterday. I’d never been there before but I’d been driven past it and seen it from the road. A new visitor centre and exhibition has just been opened there. There’s a museum all about Neolithic life and possible theories about how and why the stones were built. There’s been a lot of archaeology on the site so there are lots of artefacts on display. It was all quite interesting.

You can’t go right up to the stones because of the delicate nature of the archaeology and they’re still digging there but you can get pretty close. I can understand why they don’t let most people up there because a few silly people will always think ‘let’s chip a bit off and take it home’. It’s the idiots that spoil it for the rest of us.

If I look cold and windswept in the photo, it’s because I was! I insisted of having a nice hot cup of tea in the tea shop when we came back from the stones. I didn’t particularly find it a spiritual experience but with a lot of tourists around clicking cameras and the usual exit through the gift shop I thought it was more an educational and commercial experience than a spiritual one.

  1. I am a little jealous that you live there and can see this wonderful sight when you want to (even though you have only driven by it before now). But I understand about not feeling the spiritual in your visit. When we went to Sedona Az. and visited the Vortexes I didn’t feel much of the spiritual energy either with all of the commercialism. It is unfortunate that the spiritual sites of the world have been so commercialized.
