Day 15

After getting another full English breakfast we headed out to Stonehenge to marvel at the large stones that can be used as a calendar. They stand in the middle of a large field in what is now the middle of nowhere, with the original henge appearing around 5000 years ago.We then headed to Stourhead which is a stately home with fantastic gardens (the house wasn’t too shabby either). It is what you would expect of a wealthy English person, the owner having made his money through banking…Hore Bank, of which there is still one branch around…a pity about the name.
