Really does look like it was intentionally targeted to muck the place up (ie to deter visitors).

I can’t get over just how close the bank now is to the monument (comparing your photo here and the etching by Charles Knight here). Even allowing for artistic licence in Knight’s etching the bank must have extended much further than it does now. Frankly, another spell of wet weather and it’s not too fanciful to think the whole structure might go.

Good luck with the book by the way :-)
