UNUSUAL EVENTS


pointYou don’t often find graffiti at Ashridge – sometimes on the tree trunks and maybe at the windmill – but certainly not at the top of Beacon hill!

The “trig” point was recently defaced and looked very unloved – just a concrete post looking like a blot on the landscape. O K it has only been there since around 1936 but people still need to show respect.

So a volunteer was encouraged to climb the hill with two buckets of water and a brush, to do the necessary. When he arrived he found that the graffiti had mysteriously disappeared.

The Trust deny any involvement in the cleaning, so perhaps there is a guardian angel looking after this ancient iron age monument.

    Amazing.
    Motor cycling was very popular in those days, when there were few cars on the road.
    My Father would speed through the chalk cutting at Dunstable, and ignore the police!
