Brighton and environs.

I spent a lovely long afternoon in the reading room of the Brighton Museum having a look at old pictures and maps.

I found an old picture which confirmed that St. Nicholas' Hill had a special energy about it: there was a cromlech (stone burial chamber thing) and a flat-topped mound just next to it.

Destroyed and ploughed over I guess. Just like the 'Hoove' barrow which gave Hove its name. (Incidentally - research in the Hove Encyclopedia confirmed its position was 100 yds north-north-east of St John's Church.)

I wish I could peel back time and the layers of concrete to reveal ancient Brighton. I've heard rumours of ley-lines converging here and it would explain the 'buzz' of the place and the amount of alternative communities and new agers who flock here.
