Strictly speaking it happened at 23:09GMT yesterday, but that's 00:09BST so we can still celebrate it today :)

Didn't make it to Stonehenge this year, but here's a pic from a few years ago:

and one from 1988, which wasn't quite so mellow:

Stonehenge was privately owned. It was bequeath to the nation with the proviso that the public had free access. The problem is, once you are dead, there is not a lot you can do about your Will

It wasn't bequeathed, it was gifted by Cecil Chubb a good few years before his death; and free access was only for residents of local parishes: Cecil Chubb - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cecil_Chubb)

They got 30 tonne stones from wales to stonehenge

NickFitz got his 30 stones to the keyboard from the sofa for a few posts on this thread.

Stonehenge is very impressive, but why build it so close to the A303?

It’s on a road junction; it must have been an ancient roundabout.
