Geocache Description:

At, near, or on the path that leads one around the famous Stonehenge. (Please exercise caution along the roadways)

This site has been glorified for some 7000 to 8000 years. When I visited here in 2002, I was shocked that a Virtual Cache did not already exist. I recorded our visit, logged this waypoint and established it as a virtual cache.

The photos attached to this cache page are taken from within the outer "henge", however you do no need to spend any money to visit this cache. The coordinates shown above are for the nearby parking lot. If you are like me, this is a once in a lifetime chance to view the stones that I have only read about and seen on National Geographic specials. I really enjoyed it.

By the way, "Henge", means circle. In this case it is the circle ditch that surrounds the stones. Educational too!

To get "credit" for being there, please post a photo (include yourself or a bit of you with a GPS if possible in the shot) at the Stones or at the parking lot near the above co-ordinates.

In addition, let me give a Special Thanks to Shaggys Yorkshire Army for helping to keep this cache page current with recent construction at the site.

Thanks and enjoy this wonderful place. Update 6/28/15: Got word that the visiting center has changed and that there are now depictions of how the stones were transported. Photos of any of these are acceptable. Things here will continue to change as more and more people get a chance to visit. Please be respectful to the other visitors and those who may be working here.

No tickets need to be purchased to claim your find. Post a photo with GPS (as you are able) with the stones in the background. There is a walk outside the fence that is acceptable. Please mind the traffic and be careful!
