Modern stone circles are not on topic here I know but this project I recently completed may still be of interest to some of you.

Well done that man! (you had some serious input there as well from Paul Devereux and Julian Richards). Hope the whole project raises awareness of our megalithic heritage and helps encourage similar projects and restorations.

Oh, mate, that is so cool! You should've called Stonehengineers! :D

Very nice. Not jealous. Nope. Not one bit*.

* OK perhaps just a little**.
** A lot

I built one once and got nicked and fined [it's in my avatar], so you've gone one better than me, we didn't use diggers though, you all should have done it properly and the satisfaction would have been even greater, well done though, and what a strange reason for it been built.

We thought about that a lot, doing it the ancient way though, or at least the current interpretation of what that might have been. Our professional and expert advice swung it though... "Believe me, if the ancients had JCBs they would've used them"

Thanks folks, it was a joy. I'll update with photos of the finished site and a video of the launch too. Anyone interested in going there for themselves please get in touch and I shall let you know where it is.
