FURTHER DETAILS OF MARIA WHEATLEY’S TALK – Tuesday 13th November

The Elongated long skulled people of Stonehenge

Using dowsing Maria Wheatley was drawn to a particular long barrow on the Salisbury Plain. She began to research the person that was buried within the sanctity of the mound and discovered the person was a woman. Tracking the skull down to one of Britain’s most prestigious universities, Maria noted she had a long elongated skull and she was probably a high queen or high priestess of Neolithic Stonehenge. Were these the people that first laid out the ley system of the British Isles? The forgotten history of her long lost civilisation unfolds with more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel, but as we know, fact is often far stranger than fiction….

FURTHER DETAILS FOR OUR VISIT TO St. NECTAN’S GLEN & AREA this Saturday 18th August

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

ST. NECTAN’S GLEN & WATERFALLS, ROCKY VALLEY and BOSCASTLE this Saturday 18th August 2018

Just a reminder that we are meeting in the ‘Waterfall’ car park at Trethevy at 10am on the main coast road (A3263) between Boscastle and Bossiney, near Tintagel. The car park is on the ‘sea’ side of the road and is signposted. The post code for the Glen is PL34 0BE.

If you haven’t already paid, entrance money (£5.35 for those under pension age, £4.70 for concessions) will be collected at the start. It would be helpful if you have the correct money.

Walking left out of the car park, the path for the Glen and Waterfall is a few yards on your right opposite the bus stop on the left.   The walk is about a mile in length and at the beginning you will see St Piran’s Holy Well and the church of St. Piran. Take the path to the right of the church down to the Glen and waterfall. Notice the ancient stone in the wall on your right just past the church.

As the path is stony, and can be muddy and slippery on the steps, make your own way carefully down the Glen. Please wear sensible footwear, and if you want to see the waterfall you will need wellingtons. Walking poles may be useful too. They have a small supply of wellingtons at the shop which can be borrowed.

‘The Cabin’, their new café, serves a range of freshly prepared hot food, soup, sandwiches, cream teas, drinks, ices, cakes etc. It might be sensible to give them notice if you require a hot meal. As it will be mid morning most of us will have a coffee and then wander back to the car park for our own food at lunchtime.

Around 2.30pm we will walk or drive the short distance to visit Rocky Valley to see the carved labyrinths and attempt to age them. Turn right out of the car park and the entrance to Rocky Valley is about half a mile on your right by Trevillet Mill. There is a lay-by opposite for parking for a few cars otherwise it is fine to leave your car where it is and walk, but take great care on the bends.

At approx. 4.30pm we plan to have a look around Boscastle meeting at the entrance to the large car park at the back of the village.

Remember to bring your rods and pendulums, and cameras to hopefully capture some Orbs.

Members are reminded that attendance at Devon Dowsers outdoor events, for them and their guests, is at their own risk.
