Stone Circles: Stonehenge and Avebury, Wiltshire - 22nd August 2020

We're off down to Devon again, and once more stop off at Stonehenge on the way, staying at a Holiday Inn in Amesbury. This time, it's not lashing with rain, at least until after we get back to the visitors' centre. After the 'henge, we drive up to Avebury - the largest stone circle in Britain and also the filming location for ITV's legendary children's TV series "Children of the Stones"

next album: A Game of Cricket and a Walk Around, Chagford, Devon - 23rd August 2020
previous album: More Bike Rides, and Marc's Birthday, Brome, Suffolk - 21st August 2020
