Here is Alison as we bike back from Stonehenge to our Landmark Trust apartment in nearby Salisbury. It’s about a 10 mile trip. We are taking the carriage paths back from the World Heritage site because it is adjacent to a very busy highway that is pretty unpleasant to bike along. The carriage and foot paths, on the other hand, wend through the obvious burial mounds, as ancient as Stonehenge, that sit on the hills surrounding the monument. To either side are flocks of sheep that graze over those grassy mounds and keep this southern edge of the Salisbury Plain treeless and open.
