An exhibition will tell the story of the stone circle and its relationship with the wider landscape. English Heritage has been planning improvements to the historic site since the 1980s. In 1993 the Public Accounts Committee of the House of Commons described the situation as "a national disgrace".
A £27 million project to improve Stonehenge is due to begin today. The redevelopment will see part of a main road closed and grassed over, the car park and fences near the monument moved and a new visitor shuttle introduced.
