2018.12.12 More travels through southeast England, this time stopping to see the Avebury Stones, a circular stone formation similar to Stonehenge. It dates back to 3000 BC during the Neolithic era, and is this largest megalithic stone circle in the world. #travels#explore#DRTWengland#avebury#england#henge
So damn much fun trapping through other countries with this beautiful lady! Neither of us had really been out of our country till just a couple years ago and it is the best to see other places with someone that has as much wonder as you do. Case in point, both of us were all smiles to see this Clapper Bridge from 1300 in Dartmoor last month. So cool! #wifecrushwednesday#neverstopexploring#england
Rain...or snow? Swipe to view both views of the amazing Tower Bridge by @ottoberkeley. I prefer London in the snow as it's such a rare sight! Mind you, that rain is a bit lovely isn't it? ☔️
Whatever the weather, it's certainly better than how things were 66 years ago this month as the city was in the grips of "The Great Smog". A toxic fog smothered the British capital, paralysing the city and blackening out the sun. It began on the morning of December 5th 1952. It had been cold in the capital for weeks, so as Londoners awoke the first thing they did was light their coal fireplaces. As the day went on, a light veil of fog began to cover St Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben and the Tower of London. By the early evening, the fog had turned a sickly shade of yellow as it mixed with the thousands of tons of soot being pumped into the skies by all the chimneys and industrial smokestacks in the city. Because there was a high-pressure system over London, a temperature inversion prevented the smoke from rising. Worse - there was no wind to disperse the soot-laden deadly soup. It was a disaster for the city. Sadly an estimated 4,000 Londoners died because of the toxic air. Burglaries and purse snatchings increased as emboldened criminals easily vanished into the cloaking darkness. Birds lost in the fog crashed into buildings. The smog seeped inside as well. Movie theaters even closed as the yellow haze made it impossible for ticket-holders to see the screen! It felt like the city had returned to Victorian times. Finally, on December 9, 1952, a cold wind from the west swept the toxic cloud away from London and out to the North Sea. Possibly to Denmark. Sorry Denmark.
