digging at Stonehenge

Sunday 9 August 2015

Having maintained a silence for over a decade about damage to the stones at Stonehenge, it is in addition now known that English Heritage (EH) failed over the course of a year to inform the public about asbestos imported into the World Heritage Site. Compounding these long silences, EH somehow manages to avoid full frank public disclosure when confronted by the media. Which gives rise to various questions – not least why are EH inherently silent about the management of the site and what else are they being less than transparent about?

From tomorrow, Monday 10 August 2015, the Heritage Journal will be posing questions every day for a week – urging English Heritage to be transparent, issue full statements about matters of concern to the public and come clean when responding to the media.

(If you have a question you would like English Heritage to answer about their management of Stonehenge, send it in to the Journal, if publishable we will see what we can do!)
