    ... in the pristine waters of the river, we had a look at Wimborne St Giles and had our lunch overlooking the church and almshouses. We reached Cranborne before our bags arrived.

    ... morning we bet the rush and visited Stonehenge which now has a new access road and visitor center where you ride a shuttle to the site. A great set up with a good audio guide. Our NZ Historical Places membership got us in free which was a bonus as it is also quite an expensive attraction. From there Richard was keen to find the Kiwi which was carved into a hill by some Kiwi soldiers during WWI. After driving for ...
