Whilst driving down to Devon with Heather yesterday, we figured as we were going to be driving past Stonehenge, we’d stop for lunch there. It seemed like a good idea.
Sadly, the area around Stonehenge is a terrible, terrible place for traffic, and we spent an hour crawling along the two mile stretch leading up to the World Heritage Site. One does get quite a good view from the road, though!
When we finally arrived, it was slightly disheartening to see the whole place was a building site, and even more disheartening to realise that despite being about a hundred meters from the famous stones, we couldn’t actually see them unless we paid English Heritage an extortionate sum of money.
Declining that opportunity, I did manage to get the excellent view you can see above through a fence some builders had put up.
It wasn’t the most exciting trip I’ve ever had; unless you’re prepared to pay for the privilege, I wouldn’t be too ready to recommend Stonehenge as a place to stop, especially for lunch.
