MYSTICAL, magical lines of energy pulse throughout Hertfordshire, according to an author who believes that Hertford Castle was built using stone from Camelot.

London's Ley Lines

Chris Street, author of new book London’s Ley Lines – Pathways of Enlightenment, said Hertfordshire is a hotspot for the allegedly sacred invisible lines.

He told the Herald: “I have a map of Hertfordshire covered in them.”

He said he even considered a separate book on Hertfordshire’s lines, which are said to show linkages between megaliths and explain the situation of ancient peoples’ settlements and places of worship.

The lines have also been linked to dowsers and psychics.

Mr Street said of his latest book: “I started writing this one back in 2005, so it has been four years in the making. It’s not an objective study of leys. It’s a personal perspective which embraces the psychic, spiritual and mystical aspects of the phenomena and firmly suggests that these energy flows can be used as pathways of enlightenment and initiation.”

He added: “Leys are as elusive as beams of starlight. They are everywhere, you just can’t see them. They may be compared to the hidden knowledge of a secret tradition, freely available to those in the know, invisible and unsuspected by those who aren’t.”

In his previous book, London’s Camelot and The Secrets of The Grail, Mr Street claims that King Arthur’s Camelot was in Cockfosters, Enfield.

He added that stone from Camelot’s keep was transported to the county town and used to build Hertford Castle.
