Thing is, the evidence of your own eyes might be good enough for YOU, but you can't expect it to be good enough for everyone else. I personally have no idea, because I don't visit the Avebury area that often, and because I'm not familiar with the latest information. But I wouldn't accept the evidence of your eyes as the basis for my opinion. Nothing personal - I wouldn't accept the evidence of Nigel's eyes either. I'd want hard facts.

You're right of cause, but the sad thing to me is that some damage has happened already and will be almost impossible to put right, it's starting to slip down, and it's the product of collapses in the tunnels and them thinking that a bit of backfilling will sort it all out, it won't, the place has that many tunnels that the whole thing is unstable and if it wasn't for all the backfilling could have loads of more serious collapses.
