Soon, after many centuries, to see Turner’s timeless view you would need to break your journey, pay to park and walk a long way to Turner’s position – assuming you have time, money and are not unwaged, unaware, disabled or a child.

So the view will effectively be lost to 99% of travellers despite it having the ability to exert a profound civilising influence, acting as an arresting window into our prehistory and engendering respect, care, study and perhaps lifelong interest in our ancient heritage, particularly in young people. (See the compelling Reclaiming Prehistory by our member Tombo which we published in 2004).

Please tell The Inspector (by the end of Friday) why this direct attack on our ancient past must not happen.
