NEW INFORMATION LEAFLET ON THE STONEHENGE AND AVEBURY WHS
A new information leaflet has been produced by the World Heritage Site Coordination Unit to help to explain what a World Heritage Site is, why Stonehenge and Avebury is designated as a World Heritage Site and how it is managed. The leaflet also outlines the priorities of the World Heritage Site Management Plan.
Many people know about the important role that English Heritage Trust at Stonehenge and the National Trust at Avebury and in the Stonehenge Landscape play in managing the key monuments within the WHS but how the UK Government carries out the obligations of the World Heritage Convention 1972 are less well known. This leaflet is a brief explanation of how the two landscapes of the WHS are managed.
The leaflet will be distributed at key community sites and available when the Coordination Unit attends meetings and events.

Mystery surrounds this 5,000 year old monument in the centre of the World Heritage Site.
