Bath, Avebury Henge, Stonehenge and Dover

I took a look around Bath, and went into the Royal Baths. There are more impressive than I imagined. It is very big and beautifully crafted. One of the most striking features is that they are 15 feet lower than the current city level, not bad for 2000 years of progress I guess. Bath is a quaint city.

I headed over to Avebury on the winding roads that run through the farmland. Avebury Henge is massive, much bigger than any other stone circle I have seen. It is so large that it takes a few minutes to realise that the seemingly random outer stones are actually the remains of the outer rings. Concrete bollards replace the missing stones so that one can see how it may have once looked. The circles are so large that two roads, a chapel, a pub and a small farm actually sit within the outer rings. Sheep are grazing in the fields.

 

I head off to Stonehenge, which is about 30 minutes away. I have one ever seen Stonehenge from the road. I go inside this time, with my National Trust card. The good weather makes it a great experience. The audio guide adds a good sense of history to the site. I head off to Dover. The traffic on the M25 is so bad that I leave near Thorpe Park and hide in a business park. As I leave a security guard starts walking over. My stealth camper at least looks batter than a regular camper van in these situations. I get to Dover at around 9pm. I stop at Tesco, then find a very quite suburban street to sleep for the night.
