The Bridestones, Cheshire
The Bridestones are all that remain of a once grand burial chamber built in 9500bc. Based in Cheshire, England they sit at 820 foot above sea level on western edge of a pass with views out over the Cheshire Plain
. Due to thousands of tons of stone being removed since its construction, only a handful of stones remain though evidence shows that The Bridestones complex would have measured 110 metres with a 11 metre wide cairn. It also has a number of unusual features; such as itís crescented forecourts, that set it apart from many other neolithic monuments in England.

I refuse to spend my life worrying about what I eat. There is no pleasure worth forgoing just for an extra three years in the geriatric ward. - Sir John Mortimer
