i went for a walk after work Today looking for `billange beacon ROC post` and stumbled across this weird site with a fence around it. im not 100% sure what it is or whats its for. some guy told me it is something to do with the old mines that was once there. And just to the side of it is about 15-20 big stone blocks in a circle like stone henge with 1 in the middle ???

Its all over this fence.

Ring up your local council and ask what it is they should tell you.
You sure it's not a under ground resovire ??

Have you got a grid reference for it ?

Possibly a previous landfill site that has been capped off and landscaped? There's a few I know of around the Manchester area. Many were previously used for other industrial purposed and the holes created fill with waste, level over with soil and trees and wild flower meadows planted ontop of them :)

The stone circle is obviously modern, definitely not St Helens' answer to Stonehenge!

"EX" in a yellow triangle is the sign for "explosive air" which suggests to me its a methane monitoring plant...quick google and you find this...

Landfill gas is extracted from four of MRWA’s closed landfill sites. At Bidston Moss and Billinge Hill Quarry the methane element of the gas is burned to produce electricity (enough to power approximately 1000 homes) which is fed into the national grid.
from http://www.merseysidewda.gov.uk/our-services/closed-landfill-sites/monitoring-of-landfills/

So it's an old quarry (not a mine, although there is a disused shaft on the other side of the hill) that was filled with landfill rubbish and now it's spewing methane. I presume the green compound is the link to the generating station.

Shit, I must be really bored.

i know next to it is some land with a few buildings on it with 3 or 4 towers with loads of satalite dishes and the guy i spoke to said its a guarded secret what they so there, they turn up in plain yellow vans, and he mentioned something about audio.

It's the biggest hill in the area, no surprise there's some telecoms masts on it!
