I am not sure that British culture has been influenced by Stonehenge, although many have been personally influenced, Its a very British thing to need to know its there without having to always see it, however if its existence is threatened we will all rise up to defend it. The British phsychy needs Stonehenge probably because it "is" our history and we are all part of the story, we are all Neolithic, we have just forgotten how to use stone as well as our ancestors did.
I think the true cultural influence has been on our friends from overseas which is probably why the vast majority of visitors are not from these shores. It would be interesting to discover what draws them to the stones and to ask if they also visit the landscape. Sadly any such survey would be completely skewed by the fact that so many are on tight scheduled coach trips.
