Approaching Stonehenge

Yesterday I beheld the Roman Baths, today I decided to explore the mystical and mysterious Stonehenge via a half day tour (Mad Max Tours) which would also take me to Lacock Village. We went to Lacock Village first as Stonehenge was extremely busy with other tourists like us gawping at its ancient magnificence, and taking loads of photos. So we went in our cosy little jam packed tour bus, 3/4 filled with American college students and their teachers/lecturers over rolling green English countryside and lots of sheep. There were thatched cottages, a manor and behind some trees, a castle which used to belong to Nicholas Cage the famous American actor, before he sold it said the bus driver/ tour guide.

Lacock Village was marvellous. Apparently people who live there have lengthy family histories in the village, tracing their roots back very far. I saw the house Lord Voldemort murdered Harry Potter’s parents in (from Warner Bros. Harry Potter movies series based on the much accliamed Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling). I also saw a street lined with houses which would have formed a back drop to the BBC version of “Pride and Prejudice” based on Jane Austen’s famous book of the same name.

Then we drove on to Stonehenge. The bus driver told us of the mysticality surrounding Stonehenge, how the materials used to build it would have needed to be dragged vast distances before wheels were invented to build it. Also what does it mean? It has many connections with the sun and not all of it is left standing now. There’s even a theory it’s a link to a parallel universe. I’m sure lots of theories surround Stonehenge because no one really understands it or what it was definitely used for as the people of the time did not record their history. That adds to the attraction of it though, because you can let your imagination run wild with ideas of what Stonehenge was really all about.
