Spoil Heap At Callanish X


Excavations at Callanish X last year which wrongly claimed this site to be a newly discovered stone circle have produced a unsightly spoil heap on the site. The position of the spoil heap is as such that it obscures the view observers would have of the valley, from the circle, where the moon re-appears during regleam thus denying the purpose of the circle. It is hoped that pressure can be brought on the relevant people to remove the spoil heap from the site.

Joolio Geordio - 36 year old Geordie in exile, Newcastle United supporter, prog rock fan, fashion accessory and international man of mystery.

In a burgundy cagoule, wooly hat with optional hat hair Joolio is less than the epitome of stone circling chic nevertheless he can often be found in the company of Moey on some desolate hill side extolling the virtues of the Porcupine Tree, quoting Withnail and I and trying to establish the fastest route to the nearest Chinese takeaway.
Joolio does not own a digital camera but enjoys great popularity at the local camera shop following his stone circling expeditions! Rumours of a fast track queue being established to speed his passage to the counter with his many undeveloped films remain unfounded.
Joolio got into Cope in 1995 by mistake - (blame Moey) and his fave Cope Albums in no particular order are Jehovahkill, Peggy Suicide, 20 Mothers, Rite and Interpreter. He has been interested in stone circles since watching Quatermass at the age of 11. Joolio's favourite sites include, again in no particular order, Callanish, Duddo, Avebury, Wayland Smithy, Castle Rigg and Iarsiadra (Callanish 8A).
