Postcards to friends of the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site

Greetings from New South Wales to all the friends of the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage site. We thought you’d like to see our very own Stonehenge that we built in six weeks last Spring (we own an earth-moving company). We based it loosely upon the original with a 20m outer circle and a 10m inner circle.It’s not quite as old as yours (although the stones are) but we didn’t employ Druids to do it (like you didn’t) and we had the foresight to build it close to two busy highways, like you did. 

We have had a great deal of interest in the structure and have plans to open it up for events, starting with a coffee van for visitors to the site as well as a car park and toilets (so a similar facility to yours!) As you can see there are endless photo opportunities at sunrise/sunset and we will be taking wedding photo bookings for the site and have already celebrated Winter Solstice there.
