Police are investigating the ‘malicious’ destruction of a pagan stone circle destroyed in what they fear was a religious hate attack.
Police believe the attackers could have used crow bars and pick axes, with speculation that the attack could have been religiously motivated.
Lampeter PC Richard Marshall told a town councillors meeting last week the site had been ‘maliciously taken apart’ and is now unsafe to use.He said: ‘It is disturbing. This is a place of worship. If this was a church I’m sure we’d be hearing more about it.’
I’m not. A mosque, certainly…
Stone circles and henges originated in Britain over a 2,000-year period starting in the late Neolithic period and continuing into the Bronze Age.
So….why isn’t English Heritage involved in this? I mean, if it’s a genuine Neolithic monument, then…
The group now hopes to secure funding for a complete rebuild at the current site to improve access and security, or to move to a new location.
Well, how could you possibly repair or move something so ancient?
Because it isn’t. It’s a modern ‘pagan stone circle’, about 14 years old…
Strangely, the ‘Mail’ doesn’t make that clear. Bit naughty of them.
