When you go against your reason for existence to please politicians it’s only a matter of time before it decides to come back to bite you.

And now it has happened. At the same time English Heritage are lobbying so hard for the “Turner View” of Stonehenge to be hidden from millions of travellers forever, another arm of their organisation has announced they’ve put Turner’s house on the At Risk Register “because houses like this should go on forever”! Ouch! What could be worse?

Well, it could get worse for if, as may happen, the Stonehenge tunnel is cancelled, what will English Heritage’s press release look like next morning? “Hurrah, we never really wanted it to happen” or “What a shame, we bitterly regret there’ll be no new damage to the World Heritage Landscape”?!

Perhaps we’ll know for sure this week!
