We saw two stone circles while in England, in very different contexts. We went back and forth on this one a bit during the planning process, but decided we really ought to see Stonehenge – even though it’s roped off now. I won’t show a million photos since you’ve all seen it before, but it was pretty impressive (although a bit smaller in diameter than I expected), and we had good weather (actually we were lucky in that regard for the whole trip) so here are a few nice ones:
But for me, the more powerful experience was a set of much smaller, more modest stone circles we found near Bodmin Moor in Cornwall, called The Hurlers. It was a fiercely windy day on the moor, but we had it all to ourselves for a brief time (other than the grazing cows), and we could get much closer and more personal with the stones.
There is definitely energy in this place, and deep, deep history, and stunning, solitary beauty.
