You will find something more in woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you that which you can never learn from masters.

    Do you think the stones were brought by temporary canals?

    a thought provoking picture and also the text, CP.

      Stonehenge fascinates me.

      I love the work that has been done to remove roads and carparks so that the stones can now be seen in the context of the landscape around them.

  3. Were you there on the summer solstice?

  4. Andrew says:

    I have tentative, possibly unfeasible, plans to visit this winter solstice with wife and son (but will keep well away from Amesbury) :(

      I was quite shocked to find that we had visited Stonehenge on the day of the most recent poisoning. We travelled through Salisbury to get to Stonehenge. Salisbury is considered the most likely place for the couple to have come into contact with the nerve agent.

      Whichever place you choose to visit, it is unlikely that you would come into contact with any problem substances.

    One would not expect incompetence from the official prime suspect, unless deliberate fake incompetence, which is always possible. The apparent long delay in the effects in the initial instance, according to official reports of the procedure used, which even if feasible was nevertheless suddenly followed by apparently simultaneous affliction in two very different people with doubtless differing metabolism, age, body mass and probably level of exposure. There are logistical and chemical puzzles. There will be a rational explanation, of course, whatever it may be.
