About this deal

A place of ancient stone circles and sacred waters for forgotten locations dedicated to honouring such moments as the Solstices and Equinox. Part of the popularity of ley hunting was that individuals without any form of professional training in archaeology could take part and feel that they could rediscover "the magical landscapes of the past". Thus by associating the shape with the position of temples, the sites – and the people who entered them – would be imbued and blessed with this etheric energy. The tour was so informative, connecting history with interesting spiritual facts, I’d walked past so many places on the tour and never realised the meaning that they had. As much as I'd like to believe in some grand mystical plan for London, I find instead that misreadings are common and entirely understandable.

The Sanctuary and the circle were later merged, and in recent historical times it became the Christian Sanctuary of the Collegiate Church of St. To our ancestors these locations were places of the gods, places of healing, places of power, places of vision initiation, inspiration and revelation. During the 1960s, Watkins' ideas were revived in altered form by British proponents of the countercultural Earth Mysteries movement. Please bear in mind most items are handmade one-offs or from small editions so we may sell out of certain items at particularly busy periods. Airborne transmission was regarded by authorities as most likely, and Victorian authorities weren't convinced immediately but eventually commissioned Engineers to build a large sewage system.Ley lines ( / l eɪ/) are straight alignments drawn between various historic structures, prehistoric sites and prominent landmarks. His critics noted that the straight lines he proposed would have been highly impractical means of crossing hilly or mountainous terrain, and that many of the sites he selected as evidence for the leys were of disparate historical origins. If you live in London it will give you a useful reference for many of the capital's less well known sacred sites worth visitting. This path of power runs through Hawksmoor's church St Anne Limehouse, which is the site of another pyramid, and The Greenwich Observatory. Independently of Watkins' ideas, a similar notion—that of Heilige Linien ('holy lines')—was raised in 1920s Germany.

I know Ley lines get lumped with Atlantis, but if you read the original book, nowhere does Watkins talk of ley lines having any sort of power, magnetic resonance or anything. John Chaple though is open minded, but he doesn't think London's Ley Lines are made by aliens either. In 2005, Ruggles noted that "for the most part, ley lines represent an unhappy episode now consigned to history". I lived in Winchester for a bit, and as you can see from the map below, it is very close to one of the main ley lines in the country. MyLondon's brilliant newsletter The 12 is absolutely jam packed with all the latest to keep you keep you entertained, informed and uplifted.I always felt such a powerful energy in general when walking around the city - St Catherine's hill especially was a really great place to go and meditate, and I felt this before I knew of the ley line. When asked about the idea that UFOs had carved them out, he said: "Some of the long distance ones are difficult to explain and go over the Pacific so it's difficult to know how they would have done that. By the 1990s, British archaeology had become more open to ideas about language and cognition, topics that Earth Mysteries enthusiasts had long been interested in. In 1989, a book that Devereux had co-written with Nigel Pennick, Lines on the Landscape, was published. Ruggles noted that in this period, ley lines came to be conceived as "lines of power, the paths of some form of spiritual force or energy accessible to our ancient ancestors but now lost to narrow-minded twentieth-century scientific thought".

The Incas used "spirit-lines" or ceques with the Inca temple of the sun in Cuzco as their hub, marking the routes with wak’as, stone monuments that represent something revered. It is an estimation of this Druid site’s importance that the English Parliament should have been built adjacent to it and nowhere else in London. Along the journey, the artist responded to what they saw with poetry, storytelling but most of all, song. We also visit the legendary Kings Head pub, the Harringay Arms, the Queens, Tottenham Lane, Hornsey Town Hall, Hornsey Library, Church Studios, Crouch End Hippodrome, and much more. His obsession with leys was a natural outgrowth of his interest in landscape photography and love of the British countryside.He proposed the existence of a network of completely straight roads that cut through a range of prehistoric, Roman, and medieval structures.

Intersections acquired local significance, becoming meeting places and markets, then later burial mounds and temples.Continuing belief [ edit ] Modern Pagans in Britain often believe in ley lines running through ancient sites, such as the Coldrum Long Barrow in Kent. Michell wrote that his book would spawn "countless theories of occult Earth mysteries and New Age psycho-naturalism; stories of telluric lines of force that ran invisibly across countries, their routes marked above ground by megaliths and tumuli; the leys… would be folded into theories of psychic energies, magnetic fields, aliens and other forms of extra-terrestrial presence. He refused to publish an advert for The Old Straight Track in Antiquity, at which Watkins became very bitter towards him. King Arthur was buried in the Island of Avalon along with Joseph of Arimathea the uncle of jesus who was a Tin Trader in Devon on the Island of Ictis.
