Petition to stop the quarrying of the Thornborough Complex.
In the UK, the largest prehistoric religious site, the Thornborough Henges Complex, is being quarried for gravel by Tarmac Ltd. The henges are believed to represent one of Britain’s largest ritual gathering places from the Neolithic period, and many fear the work may help destroy clues about why the 5,000-year-old earthworks were built. Without government intervention this supremely important site will suffer further damage simply for gravel that can be easily obtained elsewhere.
The company is part of the massive Anglo American Corporation, who are not only destroying one of Britain’s most important ancient sites, but they are trying to imply that is of benefit to British heritage!
Please help us try to stop this, Thornborough is not the only important ancient site Tarmac is quarrying, let us send a clear message to the British government that this must stop.
