Contrasting land usage at the Stonehenge World Heritage site
Contrasting land usage at the Stonehenge World Heritage site
Looking north from the by-way that connects the A344 and A303 west of the Stonehenge monument. In the foreground is a field of ripe wheat - until the introduction of modern fertilisers the soil on the chalk downs of Salisbury Plain was too poor for arable production, hence its widespread use by the MOD for training purposes. On the other side of the A344 is a field grazed by sheep (a more traditional use of the Salisbury Plain land) with three of the Bronze Age "cursus barrows" on the horizon.
