Skeletal trees silhouetted. Lovely :)

I love how ancient England is. Not that America wasn't around during the Bronze Age, but nothing was going on here that we know about. I think it's amazing all the layers upon layers of history England has.

I think I visited the Nine Ladies some 40 years ago when out walking with the Ramblers - a long long time ago !!

Very fascinating! Very dark and primitive feel with a wealth of history

An interesting looking place. I'm even more interested in the history you mentioned.

Wow! An award; my first. Thank you.

I'll be posting about it, either tomorrow or Saturday :)

Now to decide who to pass it on to! Hmmm...

It does look rather mysterious. Are those spots on the ground the remainder of the "ladies?"

Looks like a sad and quite dreary place. Almost ghostly if you ask me.

It looks really still there - like you could sit in the grass and appreciate it without worrying about a constant din in the background. cheers
