Re: Ley Lines

Hello Neil; Try "Mysteries" by Colin Wilson. He sites the work of Thomas
Lethbridge, whom I believe was involved in verifying the Westford
Connecticut Knight.
Wilson writes " (Alfred Watkins) called them 'leys' or 'leas', borrowing the
word from archaeolgocal writer Williams-Freeman, who had also pointed out
that ancient landmarks seem to be connected by invisible tracks" p.119)
Watkins noted many place names ended in 'ley' or ', leigh', which means
enclosed field, yet many of these places were neither enclosed nor fields.
He suggested it meant a grassy track across the country.
Some seem to follow underground waterways
One other qoute that may be of interest: " With few exceptions, the naves of
churches and cathedrals are aligned on a geodetic line running along the
central aisle and terminating in a blind spring enclosed at the chancel step
by one or more spirals" (qouting Guy Underwood p.124)
Hope this helps, Kevin
