The stonehenge is a World Heritage Site. This came a World Heritage Site in 1986.
Roads have been closed and the visitor site has been moved further away from the site.
They have done this so if someone litters it won’t go near the site and the tourists won’t do stupid things like break off a piece of the stone and take it home which then would ruin the stonehenge and eventually then the Stonehenge would disappear because of the tourists.
Erosion is a big factor as well. This is because of the wind and rain.
