The Countess Pillar ? ley crossroads
Jul 04, 2000, 10:37
Does anyone know anything about the Countess pillar on the A66 a couple of miles east of Penrith.
I've been looking at possible ley / allignments in the Lake District and I've found dozens, a number of which pass through the countess pillar, I've seen the monument beside the road and it looks pretty cool, definitely not neolithic though.
I won't bore you with an endless list of allignments, you can play that game yourselves, I'll give you a starter with one major line : Swinside stone circle - Tover High Common circle and complex - Wetherlam - Chapel Stile - (Dove Cottage ??? Wordsworth a drude ??)- Martindale cave - The Dodd standing stones - Moor Divock complex - Stockbridge settlement - Countess pillar.
This countess is driving me mad, all I know is that it was recently moved to accomodate the widened A66.
Any snippets of information welcome.
Love and life.
