While in Nova Scotia last week I came across a micro-STONEHENGE in a MIDDLEBORO field. This version wasn’t created by Druids or slaves, but by NIGEL ALLEN, a Crown Attorney, who prosecuted some of the province’s most notorious criminal cases.
In 1997, looking for a way to relax after intense days in court and the office, Mr. Allen decided to create a traditional Scottish ‘circle’. <PHOTO ABOVE – CBC Halifax>
People began showing up and still do. Some named them The Twelve Apostles; a King Stone; a Queen Stone; maybe they were put there by extraterrestrials; a group of Wichens from Newfoundland popped by, played their drums and conducted rituals.
It’s one of many oddities you can find in NOVA SCOTIA and a good one. You just never know what lies down a red-dirt back country road.
