As someone who has escorted numerous trips to known ancient power sites, especially around the UK and Egypt, I agree with Chris that Leys are elusive to many and yet totally tangible to others - who can draw personal empowerment from them.
I envisage leylines as a representation of Earth's meridian system, with sacred sites often being located where they cross, forming potent vortices where the initiated can recharge their cells; just like a battery! I'm convinced that our ancestors could effortlessly detect these places and hence chose them as ideal locations for their places of worship.
Much of the information in Chris's book has been gleaned over consistent years of personal research (no doubt wearing out many pairs of shoes!!) especially as some of the former buildings on the named sites are no longer recorded locally. As an added bonus, I love the way he 'dissects' the place names to connect them back to Celtic/Welsh/Druidic connotations.
Although he starts with the four London Leys identified by Alfred Watkins in the Old Straight Track, he goes onto extrapolate these lines well beyond London, connecting them with other sites throughout southern Britain. I was delighted to note that where I live and work is right on the Coronation line!
I recommend anybody interested in the history of London and/or leylines to buy this book and allow plenty of opportunity to walk some of them. He occasionally escorts them himself, check out his website.
