As is always the case with visits to these landscapes, people are amazed and delighted to find out that so much of interesting has been going on under their noses without them knowing about it. There is a real eagerness to know more - not just about the Knot but about its wider setting.
As ever, the question was raised about returning the Knot to 'how it used to be'. But most people recognise that there are too many unanswerable questions for that to be possible - and that, in any case, the Knot has not had one state in the past but has evolved over time. Which time do we want to return it to?
Let's hope that, before too long, we have more information based on sound research and that, one day, the entire area will be better presented and interpreted.
Here is a picture of one of the groups, in the glorious sunshine, too!
