Coate Stone Circle

Stone Circle


Coate Water Development thrown out!

Brilliant news for the people of Swindon; for admirers of Richard Jefferies; and lovers of rural England in general.

The hard fought battle to save the land adjacent to Coate Water Country Park has been won ... for now anyway. Well done to Jean Saunders (from the Richard Jefferies Society) and Felicity Cobb who together, with others, spear-headed the long campaign.

This also safeguards the small stone circle which is in a field off Dayhouse Lane.

(And thanks to PeteG for bringing the news to my attention).
