The visitor centre is a low building nestled in a depression so that it cannot be seen from Stonehenge itself. There are shuttle buses taking people to and from the stones. It was a sunny and bright day with a bit of wind which made us glad we had brought our fleeces. There were a lot of visitors and I hat to think what it would be like in high summer. Of course I took many more pictures than I really needed but it is an impressive structure both from the point of view of its size and age.
The last time I was at Stonehenge was on Tuesday 20 June (http://www.railways.incanada.net/Diary/Diary_1961-06.html)
when I cycled down from Reading to experience the midsummer solstice. It was an exhausting ride and I remember sleeping in a field nest to the stones. We wandered freely through the stones - something which is not allowed today.
