?A causewayed enclosure was a sizeable circular or oval area enclosed by a large bank and ditch,? said Dan Ratcliffe from the Council?s Historic Environment Service. ?These sites date to the early Neolithic ? a period which also saw the first introduction of agriculture to Britain, the domestication of animals, the manufacture of pottery, and the first appearance of large communally built and used ceremonial monuments. Both the construction of the site and the activities within and around it probably served to bring communities together.?

Was featured on tv a while back for dangerous usage of invalid carriages, if that helps this train of thought? Back in the 70s was the biggest town in Britain with no cinema (closed after Live and Let Die - topical Bond theme?), says it all really, only real excitement was being Britain's No 1 nuclear target Big Grin
