British ancient sites

Photos of a selection of British ancient sites I have visited in recent years.
These ancient remains date back 4,000-5,000 years
to the same time as the building of the Pyramids.

This is not a comprehensive guide to stone circles and ancient sites.
These are simply those sites I have visited with my camera in the last seven years.
They give impressions of sites rather than a guidebook view.
I love these places: they're always very special, if you just stop to bear witness to their subtle atmospheres.
You come away feeling changed.
