the owners of the Rollright Stones put them up for sale.
There was an immediate panic amongst those who loved the Stones - either for their archaeological value, or for their legendary associations. There were fears (on one side) that some property tycoon would turn these stones into a Heritage Opportunity, and (on the other) that some bunch of wierdos would snap up the place for a temple for unspeakable rites (there is evidence that various rituals - some murkier than others - are carried out at the Stones).
In the end, the matter was resolved satisfactorily (with a few ruffled feathers still unsmoothed).
The Stones are now controlled by The Friends of the Rollright Stones - with the backing of sympathetic City backers.
