A quick trip down to Stonehenge - about 10 miles from where we live - to exploit our residual membership of English Heritage before it expires in May.

Brief impressions. It was absolutely freezing, with a brisk wind driving the occasional shower across to spatter us. Still plenty of people, though. The English Heritage tourist centre is a joke, one grade up from a portacabin. What a wasted opportunity!

Advice to the jaded. It is possible to see Stonehenge as just a pile of stones. A truly authentic mystical experience is not guaranteed.
