Stonehenge and its Environs by Chance Why did they build Stonehenge so close to the road?

The A344 from Stonehenge bottom to Shrewton goes straight pass the Heel Stone, but is no older than the turnpiking of the roads of the 1760s.

The closest milestone, facing the Heel Stone, reads "LXXX (80) miles from London, II (2) miles from Amesbury"
