The first time I went to Stonehenge was when the Tess of the d'Urbervilles TV series finished. At the end of the story, Tess and Angel go on the run and they are finally caught by the police at Stonehenge, where Tess is sleeping. Having read the novel as well I am convinced Tess is supposed to be a nature goddess.
It is the most famous prehistoric monument in Europe, if not the world, and there are always many tourists from all over the world who have come to see it. There has been much controversy over its future and the plans to build a new visitor centre.
