Lord Stevens of Stonehenge vs. The Aviator Citizen Hughes

Sir Jocelyn Stevens, the former chairman of English Heritage, was so set on seeing the Stonehenge Visitor Centre being constructed at Countess Road East. Her Majesty's Government was not. The seventy acres at Countess East was Sir Jocelyn Stevens' Grand Vision for the Centre - this is where he wanted it and this is where he was going to have it - come Hell or High water. On a page given over to the timetable for the Stonehenge proposals, it states that Lord Stevens of Stonehenge would open the new Stonehenge Visitor Centre in the year 2000. It never happened, of course, because Allene Stone Gano Hughes, mother of Airman Howard R. Hughes, Jr., descendant of Catherine of Valois, Dowager Queen of England, by second husband Owen Tudor, previously proposed Airman's Corner West (A360/A344) for a Stonehenge Visitors' Centre in 1919, before Lt.-Col. William Hawley's excavations of 1919-1926. This is according to Air West Hughes' testimony at White Rock Court (Route 66), Kingman, Arizona, in the Fall of 1974 - Airman's West is where she (Allene Stone Gano Hughes) wanted it and Airman's West is where she is going to have it, stated England's Citizen Hughes - all Countess Road Residents Group agreed. Her Majesty's Government turned down A303 Stonehenge Improvement because English Heritage's Sir Jocelyn Stevens schemed Stonehenge Visitors' Centre at the wrong location, and because the 2.1-kilometre (1.3-mile) long-bored twin carriageway tunnel was too short, not their cost. Air West Hughes Airman's Corner West A303 Stonehenge Improvement Fund value currently exceeds 12.0 billion ($24.0 billion), so why not honor the Ancient's way of doing things, dig out the old deposits, and begin constructing and tunneling? Hell, this is why The Aviator Citizen Hughes moved to England in the first place (1973). Catherine of Valois, Dowager Queen of England


1. Stonehenge Visitors' Centre located between the North and West sources of G-D's rock collection, at Airman's Corner West (A360).
2. A long-bored twin carriageway tunnel (minimum 4.0-kilometre [2.5-mile] length) under the entire site located below existing A303.
3. New junctions, bypasses, flyovers, underpasses at Airman's Corner, Winterbourne Stoke, Longbarrow and Countess Roundabouts.

Wave of the future,

Only Sir Jocelyn Stevens could have come up with the ridiculous idea of putting the Stonehenge Visitors Centre so far away from the Stones. Few people in the USA realised that, if the scheme had gone ahead, visitors would have had a very long walk after getting out of the land train from the VC. Transport for the lat mile would have been only available to the disabled.
Any tunnel is prohibitively expensive and completely unnecessary. The only reason that a tunnel was suggested was so that Stonehenge visitors would not have to put up with the sight of traffic which, in any case, has always been there from the time it was built.
Widening of the existing A303 by one carriageway to be used by east or westbound traffic as conditions dictate would do minimal damage to the World Heritage Site. Taking the A303 away completely and using it as a Salisbury bypass would be an even better and far cheaper alternative.
