The tests aim to see if a ground water source can provide sufficient drinking water and energy for a year-round heating/cooling system for the centre.The centre, about a mile-and-a-half (2.4km) west of the prehistoric stones, is expected to open in autumn 2013.

A Grade-II listed Airman’s Cross memorial at nearby Airman’s Corner will be re-sited in the grounds of the centre.
