    Could you please let me know the title of this research paper? I cannot find any reference to it, and am therefore unable to quote it.


  • Comment on: Architects welcome return of Stonehenge tunnel plans

    I agree with Richard - most of us will only ever visit the stones once or twice, but being able to see them from the road is part of our heritage. My first sight of them, from a bus, looming out of the plane early on a misty March morning, was breath taking, and has never been matched by summer visits surrounded by other visitors. I knew how the cave men felt on first seeing them!
    I know the road has to be improved, but please don't take away our view of the stones.

  • Comment on: Skyline: five demands for London

    Michelle Barkley's comment 21 July, 2014 4:49 pm

    Another aspect of tall buildings that is not considered is the shadow they cast, particularly in Northern climes such as Britain, where the sun never rises more than 60 degrees above the horizon. I once lived in a south-facing flat that was overshadowed by a distant skyscraper, and never got any sunlight except in June. A very depressing experience.
