It’s been six years since English Heritage had to close its Outreach Department. But does that mean the English Heritage Trust no longer has an obligation to outreach to people? We don’t think so, and we don’t just mean being polite to people with strange ideas but actually informing ordinary people about important issues.

There’s one way in which outreaching is not only owed but would also help EH itself. Shortly there’ll be the annual Stonehenge summer solstice shindig, with the usual damage and disrespect no doubt. EH has made no secret of the fact it wants to sort the problem out by the one means that will work – reducing the number of attendees to sensible levels. That’s where the outreach comes in…..

Why not make clear what EH knows the science now suggests: people who go there will be standing in the wrong place on the wrong day at the wrong time and looking in the wrong direction!
