After Rome, What About Those Fires Under Salisbury Plain?

ER Editor: July, as many observant people are noticing, is turning out to be a weirdly eventful month, especially in terms of governments falling or otherwise getting themselves into trouble. We are of course thinking of Japan, the UK, France, Germany, Estonia and major eruptions in Sri Lanka.

A few days ago we reported on a series of four fires in Rome, the last 2 of which occurred conveniently on adjacent weekends. The media ran the gamut of explanations not very convincingly. See the article we put out on this:

Fourth Fire to Strike Rome In As Many Weeks


Salisbury Plain in England’s south-west has just had six days of fires. This one is far easier to explain: ‘live firing exercises’ and ‘pre-deployment training’. No matter, a series of many fires it seems started on July 11, and by yesterday, July 15, they were supposed to have been put out, only to restart this morning.

Salisbury Plain contains at minimum a large area for British army training, one of its largest training sites in fact, as well as the iconic Stonehenge and other archaeologically noteworthy areas. It is not an area without significance on a number of levels, therefore. And it may be far more topographically speaking than just a ‘plain’.

The two maps below show the regions around Enford and Urchfont where some of the fires had broken out. Residents of the area complained of experiencing massive volumes of smoke with a stench in non-windy weather conditions:

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
