Photos of Wiltshire and Dorset

We’ve just returned from a mini-break to Wiltshire and Dorset. We had a bit of pre-historic theme to the holiday, taking in Silbury Hill, Avebury, Stonehenge and Old Sarum, which are all between than 4000 and 5000 years old. Salisbury Cathedral looked modern by comparison!

After that, we went down to Lulworth Cove for my second swim in the Channel of the summer. I only spotted Lulworth while I was exploring the south coast with Google Earth because it looks like someone took a bite out of the coastline. I saw a monument celebrating the fossils that have been uncovered on the Jurassic coast. It talked about the 185 million years of history in the fossils. Stonehenge didn’t seem so old anymore.
