Twentieth Century Stonehenge

I'm not sure if it's possible to visit the real Stonehenge; I've heard it's blocked off to prevent it from being overrun (again) by druids and the like. I understand the police even keep away the tourists in order to preserve tourism.

It doesn't matter. When it comes to large strange human constructions I prefer cooling towers as seen from a fast train. Their appearance is not unlike Stonehenge's, and since everyone knows they were built solely to cool the water from coal-fired turbines there's never any tedious new-age blather about what they really mean.

And a couple of minutes later they're gone.
