The current definition of a Ley-line according to http//:Wikipedia.en.org/ is as follows:

'Ley lines are hypothetical alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths. Their existence was suggested in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, whose book 'The Old Straight Track' brought the alignments to the attention of the wider public'.

This explanation by no means completes the modern definition of a ley-line, as we cannot say for example that all alignments of stones are ley-lines, however old they are. Nor does it follow that all ancient sites were aligned deliberately, even those that appear to have been.
Alfred Watkins, the modern founding father on the subject, created the first basic set of guidelines in order to describe ley-lines according to his perception. As we have learned more about ley lines, so we have had to adapt these original guidelines in order to explain our findings, whilst keeping to the context with Watkins' original ideas.

Tony is my SatNav! He is really clever too and not only knows when I should indicate, take a turn but can also apparently tell from the way the engine shrieks that I need to change gear!! Image I took the decision that you "don't have a dog and bark yourself" so I just let him drive nowadays! Every journey was like a driving test and I have driven many cars over the years and passed my test in 1978! Only problem (touching a lot of wood) I have had was when a taxi decided to take me out and was charged with dangerous driving.....

Aha. Like the 'Tees-Ex line' we learnt about in O Level Geography. I get it.
