thanks Mike - will certainly make the effort in the coming months to get there - probably better in the winter - less traffic.
Don't tell me about the A303 - another thing in life that no sane person should be forced to experience
I sat there this summer on the way to Cornwall, and sat and sat and sat - it seemed to take hours to get through that part of Wiltshire. I can remember the time when you could walk right up to the stones and even sit on them - I guess now it's grockles blocking up the roads. But what is fabulous about them m - a load of old granite forming an allegedly incomplete druid ceremonial meeting place - sorry not my scene, and as for seeing the stones, from what I gather when passing, doesn't look as though you can get any near than about 70 yards
But I hear the road configuration is going to be altered to alleviate congestion of the holiday traffic, so should improve, hopefully, but for now I'll stick to the M4.
Apologies this is off topic.
