Before Stonehenge was built thousands of years ago, the whole of Salisbury Plain was a forest of towering pines and hazel woodland. Over centuries the landscape changed to open chalk downland. What you see today, at Stonehenge, is about half of the original monument. Some of the stones have fallen down, others have been carried away to be used for building or to repair farm tracks, and over centuries visitors have added their damage too.

Visitors are no longer permitted to touch the stones, but instead can walk around the monument from a short distance. English Heritage does however permit access during the summer and winter solstice, and the spring and autumn equinox. Additionally, visitors can make special bookings to access the stones throughout the year. Unfortunately Stonhenge is a victim of modern society and is under serious threat from the effects of errosion.

There are some wonderful myths and legends that surround the stone circle and you can hear them on the audio tour at Stonehenge in nine different languages, English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Russian and Japanese.
