Great Crown of Stone

Cheer up everyone, it could get worse! But with our noses glued to screens what is there to read?
So what about a modern stone circle, the Sighthill one to be precise, to take the mind off the foolishness of toilet rolls.

Looks an interesting idea , went to a lecture by Dr Patrick Manaway a few yeras back , he;s a dowser , and had helped dowse a spot in a park in Seattle for a modern stone circle . It soon became a special place for handfastings and other socail events

Well I do mostly like a modern stone circle. When all is said and done they evoke something ancient and enduring. The Eisteddfod ones in north Wales and Anglesey spring to mind. My personal favourite is in the John Betjeman Park, Wantage, Oxfordshire - erected with sarsen stones, a perfect tribute to the 20th century poet.
