EH Chief Executive Simon Thurley has just been quoted as saying English Heritage will continue to argue for the tunnel, “with all our strength”. But WHICH tunnel does he mean? If it’s the long one then fine.


But does he mean the “Short Tunnel” – the damaging one that EH supported for many years at the Government’s behest, the one that involves building 1.5 miles of access roads to it over the World Heritage Area against the wishes of UNESCO and practically every archaeological and heritage body including the National Trust, the Council for British Archaeology, the Campaign to Protect Rural England and Friends of the Earth?


Clarification would be good. EH used to have to do the bidding of their paymasters but now that their paymasters pay so little, who knows? If anyone knows which tunnel Dr Thurley means could they let us know?
