Stonehenge has become a blot on the landscape and a pain in the psyche. The ghastly tourist centre, its tills, tunnels and fences, as well as nearby roads with their bad vibrations, should be demolished. Any claim for millennium funds should be finally abandoned, along with destructive ideas for replicas and virtual reality, which have no place in ancient landscapes and will deprive us of true experience and the vital sense of continuity with prehistory, our real heritage.
Having survived, pretty much intact, for possibly 4,000 years, Stonehenge must be released from exploitation and returned to us and its historical place in the landscape to take its chances alongside other enduring and accessible stone circles such as Callanish, Long Meg, Avebury, Merrivale and Castlerigg.
