Stonehenge cycle access

First published in Letters

I HAVE had a reply from English Heritage regarding my query on cycling access to Stonehenge.

While they favour a route via Larkhill - in consultation with Sustrans - they do recognise that cyclists from Salisbury like me will still wish to access Stonehenge by crossing the A303 at Stonehenge Bottom.

The old road having been lifted, when the grass has regrown they will put in place a plastic mesh form of pathway for people to walk and cycle on the path of the old road up as far as the Stones, from where the extant section of old road will allow access to the visitor centre.

Not ideal, but a reasonable compromise.

Apparently it will not be done until at least next year - and considering the awful weather conditions I will be happy to wait that long myself.
