Stonehenge World Heritage Site (WHS) is this country’s most important prehistoric landscape, valued the world over for its outstanding complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments and buried archaeology. The recently-discovered Mesolithic site of Blick Mead dates back over eight millennia. The landscape inspires spiritual celebrations, artists, writers, historians and people from all walks of life to this day.
Despite the importance of this WHS, the UK Government plans to build a vast dual carriageway across the landscape, with massive tunnel portals emerging into deep cuttings for around a mile of new roads. Slip roads to a double interchange would destroy the western setting of the WHS. Irreparable damage would be inflicted upon this remarkable place.
If we allow the appalling A303 Stonehenge scheme to go ahead, nowhere is safe from the bulldozer. The plans are nothing short of an international scandal. We have a global duty to safeguard the whole WHS. It is shocking that our national bodies with obligations to care for our heritage are supporting Highways England’s scheme.
UNESCO, the international body responsible for inscribing World Heritage Sites, has expressed grave concerns.
