A new long-distance footpath from Avebury to Stonehenge could topple Hadrian’s Wall as the UK’s most popular walking attraction. The pathway is being planned by the Friends of the Ridgeway, who want to widen their focus beyond the National Trail.   More here

Also information about The Great Stones Way on the Friends of the Ridgeway website.

After decades of planning, the British Museum is at last to realise a long-held dream for the establishment of a World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre. A 25 million pound grant to the Museum from Lord Sainsbury, along with further donations from other private donors and a government grant will be used to fund ‘a state of the art conservation and science centre, with new science laboratories in which exhibits can be researched and restored’.
 
Lord and Lady Sainsbury were also key figures in the establishment of the Sainsbury Institute  in Norwich.
