Overview

Like most people, John Timpson was unsure of exactly what a leyline was; he discovered there were numerous theories about these mystical lines. Some believe they are prehistoric tracks linking ancient meeting places and sacred sites, others that they are invisible energy currents passing through the earth. The "New Age" approach links leylines to mysterious happenings, including the landing of UFOs, while in recent years the lines have been linked to German ghost paths, Irish fairy trails, and Chinese feng shui. What is clear is that there are a considerable number of ancient and unusual sites that are connected by straight lines. Timpson travels through Britain exploring the history and folklore surrounding sites as varied as Stonehenge, Hadrian's Wall, and the Long Man of Wilmington. In his own witty style, he shows us the fascinating places and intriguing items that he discovered on his quest. Among the author's many books are Timpson's England, Timpson's Country Churches, and Timpson's English Villages.
