Stonehenge

Today is midsummer in Sweden and I have read that on midsummer solstice on the 21st of June  you are allowed inside the stonecircle at Stonehenge so the postcard this week comes from Stonehenge which is an eternal mystery to people on earth. Why was it built and by whom? What purpose was it meant to serve? More than a million people from all around the world visit Stonehenge every year enchanted by the mystery of the stones. The picture is taken on easter 2017.

The postcard this week comes from Devil´s Dyke in Cambridgeshire. I am standing on top of the ridge looking down on the British stud side. Devil’s Dyke is one of the best surviving examples of Anglo-Saxon earthwork in Britain.  More information here. The picture has been published on Weekly Weather in september 2016.


 

On Palace Street in Newmarket

 

IMG_4318The postcard this week comes from a misty september morning in Newmarket in 2013. I am on my way to look at the horses trained on Warren Hill. To the left in the picture is the wall to the king´s palace and to the right a glimpse of what once was his stables. Further along the street Nell Gwynn’s white cottage is seen. The picture has been published on Weekly Weather in 2013.
