Simply Salisbury and Stonehenge

I have had the good fortune to take two contrasting groups to visit Salisbury and Stonehenge in recent weeks. On both occasions the weather was kind, and we enjoyed blue skies and sunshine. I hope everyone got good photos.

The first group was a mix of children and adults from the US. The children were home schooled, and as I have found before with home schooled children, their questions were varied and interesting. If any of them see this post I should love to read some comments about what they thought of the two sites.

On my second visit I was with a group of adults from various countries. Antiques Roadshow was being filmed outside Salisbury cathedral. I have never seen so many people there, many with their dogs.

But we found a space outside the west end of the cathedral, and my group kindly posed.

Through other eyes (for the teachers planning school trips)
