English Heritage’s conservation of the Iron Bridge has been admirable. Now it has contributed to a further programme in which the bridge and other parts of the Ironbridge World Heritage site are being lit up at night for a few weekends using a colour evocative of the glow from the blast furnaces that once lit up the Ironbridge Gorge during its industrial past.

What a great project! But also, what a clear admission that the vital component of World Heritage sites is visibility. Without that the “outstanding universal value” of the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site wouldn’t exist.

So why then is English Heritage supporting a scheme to hide Stonehenge from tens of millions of travellers forever? If you think it’s utterly wrong and a flagrant theft from the past, the present and the future, please sign the petition.
