    ... some of the village streets are often used in movie scenes. One of the Abbey corridors was in the first Harry Potter movie. Unfortunately thee Abbey and most of the village shops were closed even though it was only 4PM. We took some photos and got back into the car to decide whee to stay for the night.

The stones are really heavy (8 tons to 60 tons) and were either most likely pulled by men or transported along the river avon. There is a lot of debate about the meaning of the site.

At first the ups and downs weren't too bad and we stopped at the Smugglers Inn at Osmington Mills for morning tea and a rest. A very picturesque and historical little pub.
