Old Sarum

Continuing our Poorly Structured Tour of West Country Historic Sites, we went to Old Sarum. It’s amazing; if you go to see Stonehenge, make sure you stop here too!

It’s best to check out aerial photos online before you go, so you can make sense of the massive structure you’re clambering over. My photos just look like loads of grassy slopes.Old Sarum Old Sarum 2 There’s an airfield nearby, and you can see lots of little private planes flying overhead, banking to take photos of the site. Weirdly, there were lots of parachutists jumping on the day we visited. It was spooky to look up from an isolated spot and see dozens of tiny people falling out of the sky.

The site is also very popular with dog walkers, so if you’re an avid befriender-of-random-dogs, it’s the best day out ever. A dog called Eddie gave us a tennis ball.
