I think a perimeter path further back would create the same sense of alienation from the monument as people feel at Stonehenge. One within touching distance would satisfy a need to be involved with it I'd have thought. To the extent there might even be no need for a fence. Wouldn't that be a revelation!

Not sure about the closeness thing Nigel. You can be too close sometimes. There's not exactly a lot to see stuck up against the side of Silbury is there! Surely the 'spectacle' would be missing.
Now a nice air balloon tethered to the fence and floating above would offer some spectacular views.
