European Summer Time

For those of us in Europe, all we have to remember tonight, is to put our clocks forward. But spare a thought for those hard working and incredibly dedicated rangers at the National Trust who have to do a little bit more than the rest of us. This report is from the National Trust Website:

This morning National Trust Rangers are very carefully moving one of the famous standing stones at the ancient Avebury World Heritage Site.  

“Obviously Stone Age man didn’t have daylight saving, so twice a year we have to move one of the stones.” said Hilary Makins, National Trust Head Ranger. 

“Avebury is an astonishing monument to the Neolithic people’s ingenuity.  We want to make sure the stones are as accurate as they were back when they were put up.  Each one weighs several tonnes.  It’s a huge effort, but it’s worth it.”
