I've written for some pagan magazines, and when I suggested an article on this topic recently, even the biggest UK one said they had written on the subject many times, usually getting a hearty response that they wouldn't dream of defiling the countryside....... I tried writing to a couple of new age type groups on the subject, and recieved replies such as "we ARE the folk and if we do it - its a FOLK custom.

I'm glad you've drawn a clear line between the majority of pagans who are perfectly sensible people who wouldn't dream of imposing themselves on sites and a small minority of mainly pre-GCSE twerps. Pity NT and EH can't recognise the distinction instead of pandering to the latter as if they're the former viz the completely unnecessary "consultation" on reburial.

As for them having an innate need to leave stuff, I have an innate need to nick stuff from Tescos. It goes back thousands of generations longer than their need. So what? Should I?
