Given the proximity to the henges and the evidence of the map makes a strong case. I would question your interpretation of Belflask though. You may be right, but dictionaries of place names generally interpret " Bel" as being Norman-French for "beautiful". Can also be associated with "bull" and very often with a landowning family - "Bell". Placenames are a real minefield! I suggest you check appropriate volume of English Place Name Society in your local library.

Good luck with your campaign - I've already signed the petition. Bloody disgrace!!
