English Heritage obviously don't care about one of our National Monuments
This photo was taken by a chap who defied the ban on trespassing to climb to the summit of Silbury Hill, Avebury Wiltshire. Whilst we're saddened by English Heritage's apparent lack of care and respect for one of our greatest monuments, we certainly do not condone the irresponsible acts of vandalism by so-called 'fellow croppies'!
After a year of disgraceful neglect by English Heritage, the hole in Silbury hill has eroded to become over three times as big as it was! One of our greatest national treasures built by our Neolithic ancestors, Silbury is as old as the pyramids, and actually had weathered the millennia better -- until now. A vertical shaft dug by archeologists down through the center of the mound a century ago, was stupidly not filled back in. Last spring the wooden covering on the shaft rotted away and exposed the interior of the sacred site to exceptionally heavy rains. It will soon look like a volcano!
