^BAlfred Watkins.^b Portrait of Alfred Watkins (born 1855), British photography pioneer & the proposer of the theory of ley lines. Watkins worked as a representative for a brewery but was also an early photography enthusiast who set up a firm to sell the photography devices that he invented. In 1920 he was struck by the fact that the locations of many stone circles, prehistoric mounds and early churches seemed to lie along straight lines on maps. In 1922 he published his theory that Britain had a network of prehistoric trackways or ley lines marked by conspicuous features. Although Watkins’ idea is controversial, some people also think that ley lines have a mystical significance.
