Many visitors to our cottages in Wiltshire choose to visit Stonehenge whilst in the region; the prehistoric monument is one of the most famous places in the world, and as such is listed as a world heritage site.
It has just been reported that Stonehenge is set to receive a ‘facelift’, with many improvements to the surrounding area planned. In recent years there have been complaints about the site’s closeness to the A303 and A344, and the crowded car parks also within close proximity.
With over one million visitors each year, English Heritage have decided to improve the area by closing of the nearby A344, with much of it being grassed over, and the addition of a new visitor centre.
The project is expected to cost in the region of £27million and a visit to the site is sure to be even more enjoyable once the changes are completed.
