The Stonehenge Railway

The Stonehenge Military Railway.

From the excellent Stonehenge and Avebury The World Heritage Site by Rodney Legg.

Traces of the railway can still be found across the landscape from the Water tower at Druid's Lodge to the track that the path from the A345 to Larkhill follows. It is almost as though relaying it would have provided an excellent Visitor Transit System for Stonehenge, especially if the branch to what was the old Aerodrome had been included for trains to carry tourists across the within walking distance of the Stones. And they could have returned from a stop at Fargo plantation.
