A place that gives me a lot of pleasure is a mile or so from my Parents house in Kent.  It's a Neolithic burial site called Coldrum, that sits just below the North Downs and it's a strange place to visit. There is something "different" about it that I have never been able to put my finger on - it has a presence about it. Along the route to it are a few seemingly random stones (about 3 foot across) just laying on the ground - these are clearly marker stones put in place 4000 years ago to link other burial places, including a long barrow in the village my parent live. I took these pictures on Sunday during a heat wave in England...


  1. Beautiful pictures. I now have mine taken and will post later!

  2. Very interesting story to complement the photos Stephen. I really like the second and third photos.

  3. Seems like an interesting place indeed! I love historical ground, especially when there is something mystic and untouchable about them. Thanks for sharing!


  4. Very nice pics, Stephen. It looks like it was a beautiful day in Kent.

  5. lovely pictures. and isnt it odd how places can hold the memories of feelings?

  6. It looks very green and pastoral. Lovely!
