From the Shoebox: Salisbury and Stonehenge (4 pictures)

In 1970 I visited the UK for the first time on an ‘Easy Rider’ like motorbike. Since then I’ve been there several times; I even lived in Bath for a couple of years (with intervals) between 1974 and 1978.

The last times I was in Brexit-country was in 1998 and 1999. Anyway: Salisbury and surrounds have always attracted me and virtually every time I was in England I detoured.

The Salisbury cathedral is one of the most beautiful ones in the world; especially from an architectural point of view.

 

The cathedral is in the town centre but from the park in front you walk between meadows into a forest along a creek to the old water mill.

 

 

Stonehenge has intrigued me from the first time I was there but has become too much of a touristic attraction with all kinds of (understandable) restrictions. South African born Noeline Smith lives in this area and she makes the most wonderful pictures.

These scanned pictures are from the nineties and although kept cool and dry the original print quality detoriated.
