Have you done your bit?

As I am sure many of you are aware a ridge near a hillfort in Sheffield is under threat, I urge you all to sign the petition if you haven't already done so.  It is easy to think that it's not in your area so doesn't matter...however that could not be further from the truth.  The ridge in question is poorly understood and is yet to have secure dating. By signing the petition to save it you allow for the potential of further investigations and studies to be conducted. It maybe argued that construction would allow for investigation; however the monument would be lost and could never be studied in conjunction with its wider landscape.  The local and national significance of this ridge is unknown, however what is known is that it forms a piece of our historic puzzle...who knows what piece it may be.
