Writer gives his view on Stonehenge
Former building engineer Simon Mallon, of Frome, enjoyed a 40-year career before turning his hand to writing.

"Stonehenge is older than it looks, it was built to defeat the greatest threat mankind ever faced, the Ice Age and it succeeded."
Mr Mallon believes that the henge stood on the side of a massive lake, and that the Preseli stone that was used to build it was brought across the frozen sea from the Pembrokeshire mountains to Bristol and then on across the lake.
