They're back.

We appeal to the Planning Inspectorate to safeguard our national heritage by upholding the decision of Sheffield City Council to refuse planning permission to build on the line of an ancient monument known as 'The Roman Ridge'. Planning Inspectorate Reference: APP/J4423/A/12/2180681/NWF.

This 27km ancient earthwork, not yet fully understood or dated, runs along the side of the Scheduled Iron Age Hill Fort at Wincobank. As a Celtic defensive frontier against both the early Roman invaders and the later Saxons, it has the same historic value as Hadrian‘s Wall and Offa’s Dyke. It is a monument of local and national significance.

I saw it on Facebook and thought it a good topic to post here, Let's hope we/they/it get(s) the remaining signatures needed.

Btw, i noticed there's no pic of the site on it's main page, I have friends close by in Rotherham, i'll try and procure a pic or two to add. :)
