Maybe at popular sites that attract a lot of offerings there should be a designated area, near to the monument, where people can leave offerings and light candles.


Sounds like a possibility at 'supervised' sites like Stonehenge, though in practice how it would be enforced at other places is hard to see. There are loads of spots, in and around Avebury, for example, where people leave things but it's hard to see the majority of those people buying into a designated offering area. The very nature of some offerings suggests a degree of privacy (the scattering of ashes, personal thanks or invocations) and that ethos falls a long way outside the designated communal areas that the Church provides for example.
