From the English Heritage website after reading a blurb on the London Independent.
I can’t decide how much I like the sound of this. On the one hand, it’s laudable to want to restore the area around Stonehenge so it more closely resembles when the stones were first erected. On the other hand, the A344 at least had the advantage of coming close enough to the site for a quick snap from the verge if you drove past when the gates were closed, which happened to me on my very first visit to the UK. Will there be any sort of viewing point away from the admission gates? I’ve always thought the idea of having Stonehenge “open” or “closed” to be rather absurd. Surely this practice in and of itself violates the idea of restoring Stonehenge to its original open access, ah but what do I know?
