Great news for all who know and admire the incomparable Wiltshire Heritage Museum in Devizes http://www.gazetteandherald.co.uk/news/ … re_museum/ But it is to be hoped that this Tweet from the Chief Executive of English Heritage was a slip of the keyboard;
 
“Our architects DCM working on new Stonehenge museum. Will be excellent building & we’ve got almost all the money to pay for it!”
   
Ummmm, new Stonehenge museum?!
 

There are few that would welcome “mission creep” in what ought to be a very simple, inexpensive, low-profile and low-impact visitors’ facility conceived simply to replace the existing horrible one, particularly if it damaged a nearby established museum that is renowned the world over for its Stonehenge-related collections. When was anything else put to the public? Was it in the public consultation?
