About time we understood the timeframe of the North Sea transformation. Maybe a slice of this funding should go to advancing THAT. Posted by tomatoman

You're both quite laid back here ;) One of my mates who went up and saw this damage on Sunday has proclaimed that if he ever achieves world domination, the skulls of the perpetrators will adorn poles at the entrance to the carpark. Hob Posted by Hob

Paviland Cave / Fieldnotes by GLADMAN

Ha ha! Never mind that, as MES (backed by the Inspirals) pointed out when he visited Paviland "No one ever said it was gonna be easy/A pain to tease me, the barrier's broken/Climbing aboard on a white knuckle ride/Churns my insides and the wheels are in motion". Which I think is about right. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Neighbourhood Police Inspector:
“The person or people who have done this might think it was nothing more than a bit of fun, however, they’ve spoilt an ancient monument that many people come to visit.”

Needs a bit more righteous ire frankly. I'd like to see a "we'll throw the book at 'em" zero tolerance approach, please.

Rushy Platt Bowl Barrow / Image by tjj

Yes, it is sort of underwhelming but I'm impressed by the manner it has been conserved and the fact it is a lowland barrow on/near some rare ancient fen land. So much had been destroyed in the mid/late 20th century by the M4 construction and housing estates.

Bartlow Hills / Fieldnotes by Mr Hamhead

Utterly astounding monuments Mr H. Can't be ignored simply because they are slighty out of the TMA 'date range'. Perhaps the ultimate expression of a tradition. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

That is a cracking stone. Without a human for scale the other pics don't really give an impression of just how huge it is. juamei Posted by juamei

Thankyou Ifan.

Falkner's Circle / Image by thesweetcheat

Intersting, thanks Chance. In the absence of anything linking the stone to the barrow, I'll leave it where it is though, as it is pretty much next to the circle's lost arc. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Falkner's Circle / Image by thesweetcheat

Yeah, me too. The previous time I came it was at the end of a long walk and raining quite heavily, so my receptors weren't being receptive! Shame the rest of the circle is gone though. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

the rocks were wet at the back of the 'well' when I visited a few years back. This is a great place to visit. Probably my favourite castle. Posted by CARL
