Ancient site in Guernsey could be fenced off (Channel Islands)





An ancient monument in Guernsey could be fenced off because of repeated anti-social behaviour.

The Culture and Leisure Department has applied for planning permission to put up a fence around the Cists in Circle at Sandy Hook in St Sampson.

It said fly-tipping, littering, fires and moving the stones had all been problems at the site for years, and were the reason for the application.

The site, which was excavated in 1912, dates from about 2,500 to 1,800 BC.
