    I do hope you're not expecting the crop circle to still be there...

    As a local, I'd say that Woodhenge and Avebury are far better sites to visit than Stonehenge. Woodhenge is about a half mile north of Countess services on the A 303, about 10 miles short of Stonehenge, if you are coming from London end of the 303. Avebury is about 16 miles to the north east of Stonehenge (my guesses, please don't shoot me for them - but it's not far)

    Avebury..... http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?ll=51.47586,-1.820818&z=18&t=h&hl=en-GB

    Not far from Avebury is Silbury hill - the largest man made stone age mound in the world, also the Kennet long barrow, so if you want pre-history, there's more away from Stonehenge than at it......

    If you want crop circles, then the best bet locally is around Barbury Castle, immediately south of Swindon.

    If you want more detail, please just ask.

    you could visit my cousin there (Bulford Hill) ;)

    Avebury is definitely worth a visit by the way, and so is Silbury hill I think,.. old sarum (Salisbury is also nice)

    I know it won't be there. :p

    I'm going to Wroughton for the weekend. If you're going to the car show at the science museum let me know and I'll try and meet you. I'll be on or around the Club Triumph "stand" (look for a small banner).

    Stone Henge is cool. I don't think you can get that close to it anymore though can you?

    I remember being there as a kid and I had this weird feeling.

    Very similar to this time in St Catherines Ontario where I went to the top of the escarpment where they have a giant crucifix of lights. Apparently a lot of people jump there and it just felt like things were crawling up you skin.

    Stonehenge = creepy.
