Turf and Stone Manager required at Stonehenge

Grassclippings - StonehengeIt's managed to survive without one for five millenia, but the owners of Stonehenge are now on the lookout for a general manager to run famous World Heritage Site.

The successful candidate, whose 'office' will be the giant pre-historic stone circle in Wiltshire, will be required to oversee the 5,000-year-old monument's 'exciting new future'.

Owners English Heritage have described the site currently as a 'miserable and desperate' experience for tourists, with Portakabins housing the visitors' centre.

But a new £27million museum and exhibition gallery and large restaurant will open by the end of this year about a mile away from the stones.  Regular land train rides will ferry the tourists to the site while part of the A344 that runs alongside it will be closed for good and the landscape returned to how it used to look.

English Heritage has said it is now looking for a 'dynamic and inspirational' person to ensure the tourists have a memorable visit.

Let's hope that they know a thing or two about turf culture because the last time I was there the only lawn mowers used on the site to trim the weeds (as there is little grass) had four legs.

If you need advice for your lawn or turf area, there are over 550 lawn related articles on this site to help you.  A good starting point.
