In another world….I was trying to find an old post I did on some ruins in Virginia Water, and even had fellow bloggger Margaret on the fruitless search….I must have imagined posting
After all, it is a decade ago that I was wandering around these ruins….and I wasn’t blogging then. These stones from Leptis Magna were effectively plundered by the British in 1816 for a display in the British Museum. But the Museum declined to have them and they ended up in Windsor Great Park.
So come for a wander about these amazing ruins, a little piece of Leptis Magna from the arid desert now in leafy Surrey.

This was one of my favourite parts, but all fenced off so I couldn’t explore inside:
And I took an image of this area in winter, then the last image is in the April sunshine
