Stonehenge trip

Each day this week the Heritage Journal is asking English Heritage for transparency in relation to their management of Stonehenge. Today we ask English Heritage about safety at the site.

We understand that an ‘anti-slip’ surface is proposed for the pedestrian route between the Stonehenge Coach Park and the Visitor Centre, but we have also heard with alarm that visitors have suffered accidents and injuries including fractures at the site. It is then  appropriate to ask EH: what else are you  doing to combat health and safety issues that have arisen at the site? It is concerning, to say the least, that we even have to ask and we feel there is a degree of irony in the fact that human remains are conspicuously displayed at the site, against the wishes of many of the public, whereas contemporary accident and injury data remain conspicuous only by their absence. When can the public expect this anomaly to be rectified?

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!

For other questions put Stonehenge Questions in our search bar.
