Thread Name: BS: Stonehenge came from Wales
Subject: RE: BS: Stonehenge came from Wales
I have photos of my son - now in his mid fifties at both Stonehenge in 1970 and the Giants Causeway in 1976.

On each occasion we had free and unhindered access.

At the Giants Causeway we drove down to the beach.

In the mid 1990s Judy, Jill Pidd and myself visited the Causeway and were confronted by an expensive car park and a bus to the beach.
When I queried why things had changed the man taking the money gave a typical local response - "Sure and they want to make money"
He did point out that we could park in the local pub car park provided we made a purchase. So after a break for coffee we strolled over to the free bus!!.....

Yorkshire grit & wit triumphs again.

By the way on all three occasions the sun was shining and the weather most pleasant.
