Good News from Thornborough

The BBC reports that the applic­a­tion to quarry the land around the Thornborough Henges has failed.

Tarmac are now tak­ing the case to appeal where, a spokes­man, said: “…we hope that fac­tual evid­ence will pre­vail over myth­ical inven­tion.” Which is also the pos­i­tion of the anti-quarry campaigners.

There’s more about the henges at Timewatch.
