Venture Security has been awarded a contract by English Heritage to look after the Stonehenge monument in Wiltshire.
Venture Security is providing static guarding for the scheduled ancient monument around the clock, as well as security for the on-site visitor centre.
The company's guarding team at the prehistoric ring of standing stones is made up of 12 SIA-licensed security officers, with additional team members joining to support the security detail for the quarterly events as required.
These are the summer and winter solstices, as well as two equinoxes held in spring and autumn, which are typically attended by up to 15,000 people. The site and its surroundings were added to UNESCO's list of World Heritage Sites in 1986.
Jennifer Davies, head of historic properties at English Heritage, said: "When we put the contract out to tender, we were really impressed by the team at Venture Security. We could see that they understood the significance of the assignment and had the experience and dedication needed to deliver it.
"The fact Venture knows the area very well and uses locally based team members was really appealing. Plus they have extensive experience in crowd management and handling security for high-profile public events, so they tick all the boxes for us."
