English Heritage BOAT 12 Stonehenge Closure Possible

Byway 12 A303

The English Heritage are proposing the closure of BOAT 12 mainly due to issues regulating the public viewing the prehistoric monument without paying. It would appear the byway itself is actually in good order and can be traversed in a standard motor vehicle with ease.

English Heritage have tried on numerous occasions to close the byway imposing Traffic Regulation Orders (TRO) for various false claims. In 2011 the English Heritage claimed that they wanted the byway closed “for reasons of safety and because of a perception that vehicles ruin the setting of The World Heritage Site.”  No evidence to prove either claim was substantiated.

According to the GLASS website, GLASS, TRF and LARA have formed a coalition in a bid to tackle this proposed closure.
