Stonehenge is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which acts as a magnet for visitors from around the world. In recent years a new visitor centre has been built at a distance from the site which offers compelling insights into the astonishing achievements of its builders, constructing such a monument with such basic tools.

These days you can’t get in amongst the stones, as you could in 1975, when the black and white image was taken. Perhaps, given the crowds then and now, that’s just as well!

Stonehenge sits in the heart of a huge area of prehistoric occupation and building across the Salisbury Plain. There is much more at the site to explore than just the stone circle, and enthusiastic visitors often take in Silbury Hill, Avebury, Woodhenge, Durrington Walls, Old Sarum Hill Fort and Figsbury Ring.
