A Blustery Day at Stonehenge

imageOn our first free day this year, we decide to head to Stonehenge.  I discovered that our National Trust membership was still valid and it gives us entry to the English Heritage site of Stonehenge.  The last time that we visited as a family was  on New Year’s Day in 2007.  The Tribe was one less; the Eldest had just finished her first term at school and they were all very, very little.  It seems like a lifetime ago.  Since then,  although the stones themselves have obviously remained unchanged, a rather magnificent glass visitor’s centre has been built together with a museum and some Neolithic huts.  They still have the audio tour, but now have a family one that even the Littlest listened to quite intently, as we got onto the bus and headed towards the stones.
