hkskyline's 2011 in BATH & STONEHENGE

This photo set shares similarities with the Prague photos I recently posted. The memory card got corrupted when I tried to load them onto my computer when I got home. But luckily, I had a recovery software that was able to save almost all of them. So here are Stonehenge and Bath :

Visitors are allowed to circle around the monument and admire it from a distance. Only a very limited number of people can view the stone circles from up-close outside regular visiting hours.











Bath is about 100 miles west of London and is a great day trip. Situated in a valley and surrounded by hills, Bath has a mix of Roman and Georgian heritage sites to visit.









Construction of Bath Abbey began in 1499, although churches existed on the site prior to today's medieval construction. Admission is charged, but it is worth the money to explore the bright and spacious interior.





































































The Romans built a temple and bathing complex here at Britain's only hot spring, where hot water still flows naturally today.















Hot water measured at 46C still rises at a rate of 1.17 million L daily. The Romans built a temple next to the spring and dedicated it to the goddess Sulis Minerva, who had healing powers.









At the end of the tour, try out some of the natural spa water. It tasted a bit odd, but that's probably because it is rich in minerals.
