Stonehenge adjustment carried out successfully

As part of the process of moving to British Summer Time yesterday, the stones at Stonehenge were all moved around by fifteen degrees.

The process was slightly more expensive than usual as it required staff to work on some of the Bank Holidays over the Easter weekend.

The Chief Executive of English Heritage, Dr Nick Merriman commented,

"It is important that we remember and celebrate the contribution of the anonymous individuals who built Stonehenge thousands of years ago, and take care not to damage the stones as we go through the modern ritual of moving them fifteen degrees twice a year as the time band changes." 

In the image below, one of the English Heritage staff involved is pictured on Saturday, preparing one of the stones to be moved. They will be returned to their original position when the country reverts to GMT in six month's time.
