Stonehenge Visitor Centre Still Under Debate

Representatives from local government and English Heritage are meeting for a two-week public inquiry on the fate of the proposed visitor centre for Stonehenge. The controversial centre would be built two miles from the monument.

Those wishing to visit the site would be transported by train to Stonehenge and to other historic sites on the Salisbury Plain. The centre would cost £67.5m while the road system would cost another UK£500m. Those promoting the plan hope to preserve the 5,000-year-old monument by eliminating drive-by tourism.
