    On my way back from Stratford, I stopped off to visit the Rollright Stones.

    Apparently they were the men of a King who wished to conquer England a few years ago, on their arrival at Long Compton, they were met by a witch and after a bit of an argument, got turned to stone.

    Legend has it that at midnight they come alive and join hands and dance in a circle.

    Seeing as it wasn't midnight, I thought the old chaps wouldn't mind having their pictures taken!
