STONEHENGE ONE DAY TRIP, 25 MARCH 2007
This Neolithic monument is about 5,000 years old and sits within the landscape of Salisbury Plain and bears silent testimony to a period of time that we as curious human beings, would love to know more about. The construction of Stonehenge came in three stages over a two thousand year period. Firstly there was just a bank and ditch, then came a wooden structure, to be followed by the stones that we still see today. Using the famous Blue Stone taken 240 miles from Wales, this monument was built in a circle. The distance to bring these stones is remarkable in today’s quick and fast ways, however in pre historical times, this must have been a phenomenal, if not an almost impossible task to undertake.
