English Heritage Stonehenge: Summer Solstice Arrangements

Full details of the Summer Solstice arrangements can be found on the English Heritage site.

Please note that the site will close at 15:00 on Tuesday 20 June with last normal day admissions at 13:00, so that English Heritage can prepare for Summer Solstice Managed Open Access. Stonehenge is closed on Wednesday 21 June and will re-open at 09:00 on Thursday 22 June.

Please note that following recent terrorist related incidents across the UK, additional security measures will be in place at Summer Solstice this year. English Heritage are working closely with Wiltshire Police to ensure the safety of all visitors and, as a result, only small bags (approx 30cm x 25cm x 15cm) will be allowed into the Monument Field and searches will be conducted. English Heritage strongly advise you to only bring essential items and thank you in advance for your patience.

Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) Presentation 9th July 2017

Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) South Wiltshire has, in the past, held an AGM and talk each year.

This year we are getting rid of the boring AGM bit (which even our members were not particularly interested in!) and are holding instead an) Annual Presentation entitled:

Stonehenge – Is there light at the end of the tunnel?

This will consist of a presentation, with slides, by 2 people closely connected with Stonehenge followed by a discussion.

As the potential developments around Stonehenge will undoubtedly have wider repercussions than just the World Heritage Site, I attach an Invitation to the meeting which some of your committee, and perhaps your parishioners, might be interested in.

The meeting itself is FREE and if you would like to partake of the cold buffet and drinks afterwards it will cost £8 per head.

All relevant details are on the Invitation and we’d love to see some of you there.
