Still comes down to opinion though doesn't it !..

People tutting about people that climb on stones while ignoring those that sit on them..

Walk on the banks while shaking their head at those that hug the stones..

Climb Silbury Hill? I wouldn't, if i could. I never did. Nor do I want to go inside Stonehenge

I could go on and on, but the fact is we all see it differently.

No moral high grounds here..

Only a chance to talk amongst ourselves to find a solution that others might take notice of.

A chance not to slag each other off for having differnt ideas. Not to be sarcastic because others don't see our way, or sneer at different points of view..

Time to put that aside and talk about a workable solution that very well might not suit all, or tick all the box's..

Time to stop scoring points and talk with people, not down to them, or at them..

Or just carry on the same old way..

At the end of the day i'm sure everyone here would agree the problem starts when there's potential for damage, i've not seen anything here that could result so.

The fact is EH cannot cover and record every single monument in these isles, so much of the work must come from "amateurs" if we want to go on discovering, if done sympathetically which is the case here, i can't see any problem with it, even if done without the "appropriate" authority, if we waited on all the red tape being cut we'd have a very long wait indeed.
