Stone me! (Saves VBB the trouble!)

What's this though?
"Little do they know they have turned up prematurely at Britain's most ancient prehistoric historical event. For Stonehenge was ORIGINALLY built NOT to observe the midsummer solstice sunrise as commonly believed, but more significantly the midsummer SUNSET and MOON SET occurring some 17 hours later in the opposite direction!"

Not for Winter Solstice then? Julian Richards recently blogged he was sick of reading "no it's winter not summer" revelations. This'll be a relief for him.

When making daft claims it doesn't make sense to include falsifiable info . You can find anything you like at Stonehenge re astro events but if he really did say that he clearly doesn't understand the lunar cycle .The moon , unlike the sun , doesn't set in the same place , or same time at a given date , and setting in the opposite direction to sun set ? eh ? .

There are good cases for the winter solstice , i don't see what J.R. is bothered about , these proponents could equally claim they are sick of reading about the summer solstice .
