Useless information

I love useless information, and absorb it like a sponge, to be reeled out 20 years later, to bore everybody within range.
Did you know; that the only satellite to be destroyed by a meteor is the European Space Agency's "Olympus"  in 1993.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Sewardstone in the Epping Forest district of Essex is anomalously the only place to be outside the Greater London boundary but within the London postal district.  i.e. London E4

Little Maplestead Church, Essex.

Compare this church with the groundplan of the New Temple Church, London (above), and one can easily see that the designs are virtually the same.

This round church which was never owned by the Knights Templar creates a major problem for the suggestion that all round churches were exclusively designed and used by the Order.

Re: Useless information

Why should three pubs in Essex all called The Compasses be in a straight line 10 miles long? The 4th pub called The Compasses creates a circle and points to an ancient centre of Templar activity. Other strange coincidences. Geomancy, Masons, Templars and the Peasants revolt (1381) could all be linked.

Bartlow Hills
Iron Age British with strong Roman influence, these are the largest round barrows in Britain. Unless you know different? Right on the Essex/Cambridge border. Both counties have claimed them, but both have largely ignored them.

Hatfield National Trust Forest is Definitely in Essex, but  The National Trust book address is Hertfordshire, the BBC Wildlife Magazine edition 1 - things to do had in the Hertfordshire section, nothing in Essex.

The local garden centre sells large round barrows  but they don`t say they are the largest in Britain.
