They have a lot of speculation about why that is, none of which is particularly convincing to me. In my lifetime it has become clearer that Stonehenge was one structure in a complex of related religious constructions over the countryside for miles, including walls, roads, barrows, ditches, and other erected structures. It was used over an extended period, and may not have been used for the same purposes in every century.
Yeah, the speculation at the link isn't terribly compelling either. The numbers aren't so lopsided that it needs to be anything of ritual significance.
