SoL web archive and directory of Leys



Many people enquire of SOL of the whereabouts of leys near their homes. Contrary to popular belief there is no national register of leys. They are there to be found by you; should you want to. However, over the years we have has collected an archive of researched alignments which may or may not be classified as classic Watkinsian leys. In addition, Paul Devereux and Ian Thompson made a detailed study of a number of English leys which passed the much used statistical tests of the late 1970s and early 1980s. A selection from the UK and Europe is given in this section.
