Billions being lost at Stonehenge?
According to a recent study Stonehenge is worth £8.3 billion to the UK economy whereas the Eiffel Tower is worth £344 billion to the French economy. Could this suggest Stonehenge is significantly under-utilised and capable of generating a much larger national economic benefit some of which could be spent on protecting other heritage sites? The idea chimes with our current series of suggestions of possible new uses for Stonehenge.
There have been a lot of pictures of Northumberlandia, but here are some official ones. Take a look at the one at the bottom middle! Aaaargh! What’s the betting there’ll be a Doctor Who episode filmed right there?!
A henge in London?
A group of folk have identified a ‘henge and roundhouses’ on Google Earth in West London. Not much to go on yet, though EH have agreed there is nothing previously recorded in the area. One to keep an eye on….
Just to make it clear….
Heritage Action was formed long before the other Heritage Action over the pond (the REALLY Nasty Party)! We aren’t as big as them but we’re doing OK, with 2820 Twitter followers. More to the point, we agree with just about nothing they say and all our followers are charming!
