....look into the centre...you will see everybody's wishes cast with a penny
....blow this up and have a read...it will save me telling you!
The Rollright Stones.....just a 20 mile drive from our house.
Matt and I took a trip up the other day for a bit of a 'get away'.
We're not having the easiest time of it at the moment, so we needed some kind of release.
I took a pocket full of coins, and drove up to this stone circle.
We made our wishes and had a really lovely stroll around.
This place is surrounded with myth and folklore. It has a very special feeling surrounding it. It feels warm, homely, safe and calm. People come to the king's men stones to sit and ponder, to cast spells or to make a wish. Around the 'whispering knights' are many people's wishes and spells cast into the centre with all manner of divination paraphernalia.
Across the road is the King Stone.
He stands alone looking over the other side of the valley towards the Vale of Evesham.
At Samhain you will not usually be allowed to enter. There are secret ceremonies almost annually....I shan't tell you what I've seen in the past. Some of it isn't very nice, but it sure is interesting and intriguing to say the least.
On 'our' day, the sky was blue with whispy clouds, a cool breeze with a hot sun.
It was a perfect day.
