Not that I have anything against the Scottish (isn't that Hadrian's Wall marvellous, though...?), but that Millau Bridge is something else. We saw it being contructed as we travelled to Spain via the Massif Central each year. For once modern construction has it over history - well, for me, anyway - maybe the first split vote...?

Millau Viaduct

(Oil delivery tomorrow at high cost - I feel a long exchange with my supplier coming on as I try to claw back the overage...)

Stonehenge - mystery construction, Druids, human sacrifices (well, maybe that's pushing it a bit - still, much more interesting than a big lump of chalk immortalised by Vera Lynne)

I hadn't even looked at the rankings in the brackets before I voted. I thought the two were pretty evenly matched. I think the VLA is much cooler looking and much more interesting than some old clock tower. I'd much rather visit it.

I encourage any fence-sitters to vote for Stonhenge.

Wait a minute! - Some old clock tower..???!!!!

Well at least you've heard of Big Ben - wish I could say the same about this very large ashtray or something - I mean, what sort of descriptive quality is that - where's the alliteration?? Sounds like 'maybe it's big, maybe it isn't - probably best we say it's larger than a lot of other things we know - that sounds safe enough, won't offend anyone there...'

PS. - Vera is still alive and well - just that she's hung up the vocal chords...
