Evening walks at Stonehenge

Next June 2010, David Dawson (Director of the Wiltshire Archaeological and Natural History Society) will lead a series of 1-hour long tours within the stones at Stonehenge, providing an opportunity to see the the main features of the circle and learn about the cycle of its construction and rebuilding.
     It will be allowed to inspect and photograph (for non-commercial purposes only) the stones closely, and see the inscriptions, including the famous 'daggers' believed to date from prehistoric times and wander at will inside the circle.
     There will be three visits. The first two afford an opportunity to observe the evening sunset: 10 June - 8.45pm to 9.45pm and 14 June - 8.45pm to 9.45pm. The third evening is slightly earlier: 9 July - 7.30pm to 8.30pm. Meet at Stonehenge car park 5 minutes before booked time.
     Last year's event was extremely popular so prior booking is essential. Cost:   £18 (£11 Children). Reduced rates for NT/EH members (£15.50/£10). You can contact the Bookings Secretary on 01380 727369, or send an email message to wanhs@wiltshireheritage.org.uk
