The Stonehenge road plan is back again!

This website is an archive of the original campaign against a new highway through the Stonehenge World Heritage site, which ended in 2007 when the plan was defeated. Since then, the plan to drive a highway through the World Heritage Site has been resurrected! It is, once again, being fought by the excellent Stonehenge Alliance, representing archaeological, environmental, and transport groups committed to protecting the World Heritage Site and solving transport problems in a sustainable way. Please note that this website is a frozen archive of the old campaign and it is no longer updated. For the latest news about the current campaign, please check out the new Stonehenge Alliance website.
