The already very very old junction around 1930

Stonehenge Bottom (also known as Stonehenge Fork) was a very historic junction: this road junction predates the monument that names it - in fact it was because of this junction that Stonehenge was built here over 4000 years ago. You could not turn right onto the A303 at this junction. A trial run in the summer of 2011 closed the A344 off at this junction, to demonstrate the effects of the new road layout being planned as part of the new Visitors' Centre, which would stop off the A344 permanently.

The permanent closure happened on Monday the 24th of June 2013.
