Interesting chambered tomb on the hillside, or is a trilithoned cove? Plus there's a UFO caught in the sunbeam. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Such flights of imagination, and so well ordered, they got carried away with the number of stones. Poor (peaked) Silbury sulks in the background. moss Posted by moss

Also they seem to be carrying the stones on their shoulders (contrary to your recent news post). It is beautifully neat. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon

Very neat, although nothing is in the right place in relation to anything else, so just as well they could easily pick up the stones and move them about. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

"Interesting chambered tomb on the hillside, or is a trilithoned cove? ..."

Can anyone identify it?

I think it's probably the Devil's Den with a bit of artistic licence. Got to have a good composition you know.

I think we're sat on Windmill Hill aren't we?
