Section 2- Open Questions

You may write as much or as little as you like. Please complete this section before the next section.

It may help to know that North is to your left as you walk up the path to Stonehenge from the bus stop and that questions may refer to features in the wider landscape. It may also help to follow the clockwise route marked by the numbered signs, if the whole path is open. To help you to identify features in the landscape, the numbered audio guide signs will be used for suggested viewing spots the first time a feature is mentioned.
