On 10th June 2011, a bright day, in brilliant sunshine, we decided to see someauthentic, old-charm British villages and “tourist attractions” places. So after a quick “google‟ we were all packed into the Volkswagen, as we drove off into the beautiful Wiltshire county.
Our first stop took us to the world famous Stonehenge monument, made ever so popular by the “wallpaper” on many a PC across the globe.
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is com-posed of earthworks, surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. It is at the centre of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.
The site and its surroundings were added to the UNESCO’s list of World Heri-tage Sites in 1986. It is a national legally protected Scheduled Ancient Monu-ment. Stonehenge is owned by the Crown and managed by English Heri-tage, while the surrounding land is owned by the National Trust.
