Stonehenge views 'disappointing'
The leader of Salisbury District Council has said he is disappointed with the response to a consultation on a new Stonehenge visitor centre. About 400 people wrote in over the proposed £67m centre, which would be located two miles from the stones. The plans include a cafe and a train to transport visitors to Stonehenge.
Councillor Kevin Wren said: "We would have preferred more responses. Obviously it is in many ways disappointing." The scheme - three years in the planning - is for a single-storey building two miles from the stones. The new land train will take visitors on a 25-minute journey from the centre to the stones, via a series of drop-off points across the site.
The plans have been submitted to Salisbury District Council and a decision is expected in 2005.
