“Police in the West Country, especially those stationed near to ley lines and other mystic features, were put on the alert yesterday as would-be festival-goers were turned away from Stonehenge.”

June 1st 1985

Blessed be the Guardian for a sense of fun, the following article from  this day in 1985, about the coming Stonehenge Festival scene is a  reminder of where we are today and what it was like in the bad old days of the 20th century.

“Police in the West Country, especially those stationed near to ley lines and other mystic features, were put on the alert yesterday as would-be festival-goers were turned away from Stonehenge. A loose but effective cordon was flung round Wiltshire to prevent the proposed 12th annual Stonehenge festival from settling anywhere near the most important ancient monument in the country.”

Did the police have maps of the leylines? and how big was that “loose and effective cordon round Wiltshire.  Don’t ask silly questions… enjoy
