    Since they fenced off the whole site from tourists. It doesn’t appeal to me anymore. If I can’t sit in the circle and meditate during the equinoxes, they can stuff it.

    The views of the Columbia Gorge is awesome!
    Unless you have been to Stonehenge to se for yourself you would chuckle at that replica, I assure you.

    RIP Wes.

    Too many twats converged on the site, fencing it off saves it for the future generations to enjoy.
    RIP Wes.

    It's have to be roped off. People are vandals for fun these days. Sad but true.

    I took my whole family to Carnac in Brittany France, it’s a huge site. It’s staggering actually, the manpower to get these stone there is superhuman in context just like the stone of Stonehenge. The only difference between the2 sites is that the Stonehenge stones were worked and cut to size and length for building purposes, by this act it is more remarkable.

    RIP Wes.

    Fixing a 5000 year old stone structure with bloody concrete verges on blind stupidity.........

    For years ive said the main purpose of Stonehenge, IMHO, is nothing to do with Midsummers, this is a Victorian Fantasy. The point about stone henge is if you stand in the middle 6 months later and look the other way, you see the sun set on the shortest day. This was a far more important day than Midsummers because its the point the days started to get longer, the start of a new yearly cycle, The return of the sun. Also, turn left, the southernmost pair of trillithons lines up with the altar stone and exactly with the first light of the rising sun next day.

    It sure is. Cat snot would have been better than ugly old concrete. I guess it was all they had at the time.

    Do you think it's a simple calendar to mark the winter solstice so they knew when to plant in the Spring?
