Let Lawrence of Arabia rest in peace

Dorset County Council is considering allowing the quarrying of sand and gravel half a mile from the grave of T E Lawrence, better known as Lawrence of Arabia, in the village of Moreton. The Cemetery and the Church of St Nicholas where his funeral service took place are in this unbelievably peaceful and tranquil village.

The noise and disruption caused by the constant movement of trucks would destroy the peace of this wonderful place. The scars to the landscape once the quarrying was over could be healed but the tranquility and unique atmosphere of this historic corner of Dorset would be lost forever.

Please join me in urging Dorset County Council to stop this proposed act of vandalism.
