5.0 out of 5 stars A gorgeous, thick compendium of Britain's aged sight lines., 14 Feb 2002
This review is from: The Old Straight Track: Its Mounds, Beacons, Moats, Sites and Mark Stones (Paperback)
Excellent, early-century guide to the fascinating ley lines that criss cross Britain. These lines were amply pushed by creating notches in mountains, clearing land to view old church centers and of course the pagan mounds we all know so little about. Watkins's book is a delight and inspiring. Go back in time when people had to rely on contours and landmarks from many miles away. Sometimes older is better. Check it out!

Watkins' point is that churches were built on ley lines, not the other way round, I believe. And we do in fact know rather a lot about those pagan mounds, with a few notable exceptions like Silbury Hill.

Just a side issue, but - there is an album by Jack the Lad called 'The Old Straight Track'. Ah, Jack the Lad, I remember them well. Much under-rated.

Sometimes older is better. But not when it comes to dentistry.
