Stonehenge and its Environs — News

The battle for the future of Stonehenge


Britain’s favourite monument is stuck in the middle of a bad-tempered row over road traffic. By Charlotte Higgins

Published: 06:00 Friday, 08 February 2019

Stonehenge, with the possible exception of Big Ben, is Britain’s most recognisable monument. As a symbol of the nation’s antiquity, it is our Parthenon, our pyramids – although, admittedly, less impressive. Neil MacGregor, the former director of the British Museum, recalls that when he took a group of Egyptian archaeologists to see it, they were baffled by our national devotion to the stones, which, compared to the refined surfaces of the pyramids, seemed to them like something hastily thrown up over a weekend.

Kilgraney (Chambered Tomb) — Fieldnotes

The landowner here is very proud of what he has on his land. There's even a sign on the gate into the field announcing the presence of the Kilgraney Dolmen. The structure here is badly collapsed however. I struggled to identify any of the orthostats but I'm sure they have been plundered down through the years as there are distinct quarry marks on two of them. The babbling stream not 5 metres away from the monument is soothing. Access is downhill from the aforementioned farm gate and visitors are welcome.
