There's no fence OG, other than a rope and rebar perimeter. it runs along the path next to the outer stones and quite a distance away round the rest of the perimeter around the wooden markers. There are also Wardens who patrol the area and keep people from getting near and touching. I believe, by appointment groups are taken through the stones by a guide, told the history and beliefs that are associated.
 
This pic shows the closest point to the stones you can get;

 
This pic shows the rope and rebar at about knee high to the people;

Absolutely mate, The stones are just majestic monoliths from a bygone era.

I love Stonehenge, it is iconically British and has a powerful vibe to it. I might work up the courage to go to the summer solstice there next year.  :-X

I set this image to replace the windows start-up logo and login screen background a few months ago on my laptop, I still dig it.

I wish I had gone to see it while I was there. It's beautiful.

I saw a marvellous sunset picture (or it might have been sunrise) once, I will have to see if I can find it again. I'll post it if I come across it.

The only significance it holds for me is

1...Remembering how my back ached when I was done putting it up.
2...Being annoyed when those kids vandalized it.

Actually C_A, I wonder if you wouldn't have been better building it a bit further away from the road? Might be worth considering next time.... :-p 8)
