You’d be forgiven for thinking that hiding the stones from millions of people unless they pay a fortune isn’t in the interest of the public. Yet that’s what English Heritage is calling for, despite dressing it up as being for the public’s benefit. It begs a legitimate question: are there ANY public rights English Heritage is keen to preserve? Well yes, remember these genuine press stories, years ago …

We’re not anti-Druid. They’re welcome to celebrate at the stones. But they aren’t millions of people. In fact, according to them, there is often only a dozen of them there, together with tens of thousands of others who aren’t Druids.

Wouldn’t it be better if English Heritage was as protective of the rights of millions of national and international travellers as it is of the rights of Druids? It is not its role to ensure free access for a few thousand people at Solstice while removing the right to a free view from millions forever.

Yet that’s precisely what is happening!
