- Saturday 20th March - Spring Equinox, the Stones open around 5 a.m.
why stonehenge is believed to have been an astronomical calculator
- Winter Solstice 2009 is h17:47 Monday 21st December, therefore the southest sunrise is on the Monday, at h08:02 but some druids prefer the first sunrise after the solstice so they have asked English Heritcage to open their gate on the morning of Tuesday 22nd December.
- Peter Carson of EH writes:
I am able to confirm that at last month’s Roundtable Group meeting and again yesterday the date of the access to Stonehenge for people wishing to celebrate the Winter Solstice was discussed and agreed that it should take place at dawn on Tuesday 22nd December. The access will commence at 7.30 – 7.40am and only when it is considered sufficiently light to ensure safe access.. Visitors will be asked to vacate the site by 9.00am.
It will be of great assistance if these timings are widely circulated – many thanks for your assistance.
- Visitor Centre consultation deadline now 26 November!..
~ see egroup for updates
- Close the A344 road by the Helestone to cars forthwith - it's bloody dangerous!
- There will be new government plans for a visitor centre at Stonehenge in time for 2012 out soon...
- Autumn Equinox
Solstice 2009 is around 9p.m. Tuesday 22nd September, the
gates will be open and free for people and druids etc around 7 a.m. on
Wednesday 23rd. A more accurate astronomically east sunrise is on
Tuesday 22nd (if it's not cloudy), but concensus at a Salisbury meeting
was to have the gates open on Wednesday 23rd. Whoops.
- Summer Solstice Sunrise was Sunday 21st June 2009 English Heriticage will be provided a carpark from 7pm on Saturday 20th June, and opened their gates again.
- There were sniffer dogs and metal detecting machines (which
beeped at my steel toe cap wellies) and a hovering police camera thingy
and some idiots on Ketamin.

- Our egroup is SPG2:

- Arthur has been picketing all winter at Stonehenge for free access: get updates on his quest at
He has now moved on.
- Spring Equinox was noonish Friday 20th March 2009, so we met in the track Thursday night.
Bring firewood, drums, etc....
Keep music live - boo to pre-recorded unlive sound systems.
To be negative I'd say too many new age druids - to be positive I'd say Not enough hippy drummers!
