A leading travel magazine has recently named the collection of stones - thought to have been constructed around 2600BC and the largest stone circle in Europe, as the second best heritage site in the world. The Wiltshire world heritage site has been placed ahead of much more recognisable sites including the Valley of the Kings in Egypt, Taj Mahal in India and the Forbidden City in China.
