The fuss over the Delapre Golf Club club in Northampton which has stripped topsoil from part of the site of the 1460 Battle of Northampton continues. The club has now put in a retrospective application for planning permission, and objections are being raised.
claims in the planning document “no significant archeological evidence was found” by a trained metal detector have sparked a furore among conservationists, with more than 100 people writing letters to Northampton Borough Council from across the UK, to object to the plans.Trained? Whatever next? Some of them might even be capable of lerning to reed and rite one day.
The word, by the way, is 'archaeological'.
