200 archaeological sites in Wilting field shows heritage abuse at Public Inquiries.

I visited the site at Upper Wilting Farm yesterday and counted 200 sites where the archaeologists Oxford Archaeology have conducted or are in the process of conducting excavations covering nearly half of the field to date and probably another 200 unopened yet. This degree of investigation is not normal for any road and confirms the presence of Hastings and the Burgh at Upper Wilting, built upon the orders of Alfred the Great. Let us dispose of the pretence that there is nothing here and stop the road Minister, as this is national heritage and road builders should not be destroying it. The evidence presented to the public inquiries in 1996 and 2009 by the experts can now be seen to be misleading and inherently wrong. If road builders can lie to the inspector through supposition that is so inherently wrong, then there must be some accountability and a means of protecting the public from this abuse. I have forwarded copies of the excavations to the Minister of Culture.

    It would be wonderful to actually see some proof of something that cannot be refuted! Best of luck Nick.

    Hello Nick,
    Keep up the good work….
    It should be obvious to anyone with half a brain that the so called byepass / road is a complete and utter nonsense, but of course those with a vested interest, financial I’m sure would not agree !!!
