Behold. And then look at each other with a wild surmise. Because here, on Salisbury plain, under a sky like moving marble, you're going to be face to face with primeval Britain...

 

Stonehenge! That place of ancient ghosts. Stonehenge..."those storm-sculptured stones...that outlast the skies of huistory hurrying overhead." Stonehenge...observatory? altar? temple? tomb? ...to serve strange gods or watch familiar stars. And before that, there's Salisbury. Salisbury...even the name is mellifluous. Salisbury is the most spectacularly beautiful cathedral in Britain. Salisbury is the river Avon and mediaeval streets lined by half-timbered houses with high oversailing upper floors and tall gables and rejoicing in names like Ox Row and Silver Street and Fish Row. Salisbury is Thomas Hardy's Melchester and Anthony Trollope's Barchester - and views over the meadows that Constable painted. And betwixt and between...there are picturesque country roads that take us past the ancient site of Old Sarum and through a lush valley, past old churches and thatched cottages and country mansions. And if you'd like some more views – more imagery – click here! And if you'd like to read some more – well, pop-ups don't come any better than this!
