Stonehenge & Salisbury Cathedral Pics


Stonehenge, Nov. 12, 2006

I’m jumping on a plane in a few hours to head out to Las Vegas for
PubCon. So it’s clear off the camera time
before I depart, to make sure what happens in Vegas shows up on Flickr. Among my
clearing out photos are some snaps of Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral.
Rebecca Kelley from SEOmoz is
over here in the UK, so I gave her a whirlwind tour this Saturday of our local
sights. Some pics, for those who are interested.

Stonehenge was a first stop, a cold day for her visit. FYI, if you’re
thinking of visiting, be sure to read my
Stonehenge tour tips (which
also has some more pictures of the stones).

Later, we hit Salisbury
Cathedral
, impressive for its giant spire, the
tallest
medieval spire in Europe:


Salisbury Cathedral

Sadly, my little point-and-shoot digital doesn’t do it justice. Another view:

It was too dark inside for my camera to shoot well, but here’s one look at
the interior:

Former prime minister Edward Heath made his home in Salisbury. Heath died
last year, and I hadn’t realized he was buried in the cathedral. His marker:

Bye, Rebecca!

    Thanks again, Danny! I had a really fun time, despite the long train rides and the cold weather. Salisbury Cathedral was really neat, and I certainly appreciated your hospitality.

    Edward Heath! He lived right opposite the Cathedral too.
    I have a photograph of him getting in his car with armed police around him from 1991
    Salisbury Cathedral is quite a sight. I had my own pub and restaurant in Bath nearby for years.
