The main thing is they're using the land well by building houses on a flood plain.

Marden boasts the country's largest henge (* see below) and for the next six weeks the village will be home to a major archaeological dig over three sites. It is the first part of a three year programme led by the University of Reading to uncover significant remains in the Vale of Pewsey that will help tell the story of Stonehenge and Avebury - and of the Vale itself.

It’s amazing what you can do with a few rakes, a stick and a piece of string! This map was etched into the sand at Whiteford Burrows on the Gower. See how here: bit.ly/1Dsnyif

Catching up with culture a month after a release has its advantages. An empty cinema to enjoy the beauty of the English Lake District in 3D......

ZERMATT, Switzerland—The summit of the Matterhorn pierces the sky like a medieval spear. Standing on its tip, my crampon points biting into a rim of blue ice, I feel as though I’ve been swallowed by the sky. The plunging emptiness gives way to nearly endless views Switzerland to the north and Italy to the south.

A road near Avebury stones in Wiltshire could be permanently closed to protect the World Heritage Site (WHS). A new joint management plan for Avebury and Stonehenge recommends closing the B4003, which runs south of the circle.

Beth Thomas, WHS co-ordinator, said traffic along the narrow road was "damaging the archaeological fabric" and closure had to be considered. But Ben Butler, who farms nearby, said it was "an important route for farm traffic" and a "vital access road".

I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed, but since about 2am the Conservatives have been extraordinarily quiet. When the exit poll showing unexpected success for the Conservatives came through, Theresa May and Micheal Gove on TV were understandably cautious, and as the reality of the situation became clearer they weren't as happy as you'd expect. Then they all disappeared.

I wonder if they're in shock. Their manifesto and subsequent announcements were expensive, £8bn for the NHS, new roads, housing, infrastructure, increasing tax allowances, saving incentives, childcare funding, lowering all sorts of taxes. And there's other big costs on the horizon: more social care, growing pension costs, defense spending, many more children to enter primary education. And cuts promised, that £12bn on working age welfare that they've said aren't prepared.

There's also problems with the economy: consistently lower growth than promised, bigger debts and deficits than forecast, a huge problem where productivity is lower than France.

And political issues: a promised referendum on EU membership with associated instability to markets, currency, industry, investment and employment. There's no effective UKIP but plenty of UKIP voters to fan the political right.

I think they're in crisis. They're not in a coalition any more, they cant blame the other party. Their claims that economic problems are the fault of the last Labour government, and their ideological love of austerity is increasingly remote. They can't drop their bumper manifesto for a thin coalition document.

The Conservatives have now got a majority, the buck stops with them. They're working hard on how they're going to spin this unexpected success.

The High Line is thus a perfect example of “environmental gentrification” – the growing phenomenon of rising property values in the wake of a large-scale urban greening project. It’s a bit like the introduction of a new transportation hub or other major infrastructure project: while intended to serve existing residents, in reality it tends to increase land values to the point that those who live there are forced to leave. This exodus in turn transforms the sociological contours of the area and, by extension, the spatial segregation of the entire city.
With upwards of 5 million visitors each year, the popularity of New York’s High Line has created difficulties for local residents and small businesses. So is there a better way of introducing nature into our cities?
