Where the hell's Delling?
Jul 11, 2000, 21:24
I was wondering if anyone could help me here...
I really enjoyed finally catching up with JuLian's TV show at the weekend on the vid, you understand) and genuinely recognised a kindred spirit in someone who knows and loves the ancient Marlborough Downs. In truth, I've been stomping all over them for years...
What intrigued me was the little map on the programme which showed the Sanctuary, West Avenue and Avebury, with "Delling" (as the great man put it) situated in
what I've always known as the Sarcen Fields or Grey Wethers between the Ridgeway and Manton Down. This is a truly magical site on the Downs; but I've never heard it referred to as Delling.
Am I getting it wrong or can someone out there throw some light on this?

Respect all round
