A stoney si­lence

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

TO get not one but two of the grandees of the her­itage lobby trum­pet­ing sup­port for the highly ex­pen­sive tun­nel op­tion at Stone­henge is (per­haps a sad com­ment on the age) bound to awaken sus­pi­cion (Letters, March 8). I find it all a staggering fail­ure of imag­i­na­tion. Stone­henge has been a sight for the trav­eller for cen­turies. Cur­rently, they drive smelly cars, but the mon­u­ment will see those off as it has seen off Shanks’s pony. The tun­nel will be com­pleted just in time for largely silent and odour-free elec­tric ve­hi­cles and we will all won­der why we both­ered. Matthew Dobbs, London W11
