There is nothing quite like Stonehenge anywhere in the world and for 5000 years it has drawn visitors to it. Through radio carbon dating we now know that the first henge was built around 3,100 BC.

Stonehenge was formerly owned by a local man, Sir Cecil Chubb, and he gave it to the nation in 1918 and it is now managed by English Heritage on behalf of the UK Government. In 1986, it was inscribed as a World Heritage Site. It is without doubt one of the finest prehistoric monuments in existence and an even more remarkable mystery.
