Yes, it looks like it BS. I think we are on the Mary line.

Fiona was born in Crediton, Devon, which i just noticed is also on the line.

How exciting!  I wonder if my place is on that line too?  I live quite near Aylesbury, Mentmore, Ivinghoe Beacon, Luton and Dunstable...

I'll try that again!

Wow, just continued the reading - phew, we must be near the epicentre, then .....

The ancient avenue of stones leads from Silbury Hill to Avebury, where these amazing, but huge stones form a circle - it's quite a sight!

As for the crop circles - incredible, see here.

"You don't spell it, you feel it" (Pooh).

 'A hug,' said Pooh 'is always the right size!'

I'm unable to see that BS, my laptop doesn't like You Tube.  I have, however, found this.

I'll try that again!

Wow - amazing bits of info, TA.

So much that we are unaware of - but very interesting all the same!

It fascinates me BS.  Being of a spiritual nature, I can spend hours investigating things like that.

I'll try that again!

Can I just say that the thought of opening a shop in your barn is very exciting, so don't dismiss it too soon, will you?

Thanks, BS - no, we certainly have not abandoned the idea and I will take action this week to enquire about planning regulations and see what hoops we would have to jump through.

Ahem, TA. Lovely image but even "aisle" would be too big a word for the teeny emporium big_laugh .

Plural won't even come into the equation!

wave  Wow, I have just read this thread for the first time.  Two very different threads in one, but both quite exciting.  Danny I think Fiona's idea is very interesting and something I can imagine her doing oh so well.
 When we were designing our new kitchen for the village hall, I had a meeting with Health and Safety from the Council and it was very helpful.  It might be a good idea to contact the Council.  That gives you an idea of costings for kitchen facilities and that may determine further actions.  No point looking at planning until you know what can be possible or indeed afforded.  I agree with Val that Fiona would like the personal touch and a sense of achievement.

 

Living on ley lines!! How exciting would it be if you lived on the same line?  I too am so interested in anything spiritual TA.  I love learning about ancient cultures and their beliefs and how they actually affect modern life.  big_hug
