As this is another grey, occasionally drizzly Sunday I decided NOT to go on a walk today. Instead I looked back through all the photos I took during my blogging hiatus. I had toured the nearby sites of Ancient Britain - the Ridgeway, the Uffington White Horse, Wayland's Smithy, Avebury and West Kennet Long Barrow.

Some of them I have visited on family holidays before and I keep returning to Avebury, which is a mere 20 minute drive away and holds a deep fascination for me, which I can't really explain. I have always felt drawn to burial mounds and monuments and some of my stories are inspired by them. My favourite site is in Schleswig-Holstein, near the Baltic coast in Northern Germany but Avebury certainly comes second!

  1. Hi, Große! Wunderschön! Erinnert mich, wie bereits auf Facebook gesagt an eine BBC Kinderserie aus den 80iger Jahren. Haben die wohl dann auch an den Originalschplätzen gedreht, u.a. Waylands Schmiede.
