My hope is that in visiting these sites people will not only come to know more about the local landscape and our ‘indigenous’ past; they will also reflect on how that relates to life in the present-day.
Yes, many people have heard of ‘The Rollright Stones’, but there are many more sites accessible in the local landscape. By accessing them on foot you get a better feel for how they, and ‘you’, exist in that landscape today.
In one sense this is a collection of memories. Of walks which produced some of my favourite photos. As I look through the images in my collection, though, I realised it described something more. A skeleton; a super-structure of places on which the essence of the local landscape sits. Its collection of ancient sites.
It is possible to access the pages of the guide by clicking on a map, or by scrolling down through a complete list of the sites in the guide. To find out about how to use the accessibility controls in these pages, see the ‘Accessibility Information’ page.
For a list of walks around some of these sites, see the local walks page.
This is not a ‘fixed’ guide. Over time it will change as new sites are added, new pictures taken, or as the landscape itself changes. In that sense I hope the guide, like the landscape itself, changes with the passage of time, recording not just the past but the present-day experience of this area.
As and when the opportunity becomes available I will add new photos and sites to the guide (see updates section). Likewise, any feedback would be appreciated (click on social media/contacts icons at the top of the page).
