Nestled on Compton beach on the beautiful Isle of wight a strange Monolith has appeared. Art sculpture? Sent by aliens ( fans of Artur C Clarkes a space odyssey will see the connection!) or a huge media hype ?
A small but steady stream of people have been braving the cold misty beach this morning , the echoing sound of the ebb and flow of the waves a constant reminder that the moon controls the sea which is reflected in the beautifully stark erection. Maybe this is a hint to celestials or beings from another planet?
Down from the car park at the top of the cliff you descend rickety wooden steps and the excitement and mystery does catch at the imagination. People are clearly excited and overjoyed at the discovery on their island. Just 1oo yards from the base fo the steps the three sided monolith stands its base in three wooden legs buried into the sane and built up with boulders and sand hinting at a very human involvement.
One witness said because there are so few people here I feel like I could have discovered this myself before the world had a chance to claim it.
Ms Debbie Reilly said ‘ I found it a little underwhelming to be honest, I so wanted it to be Aliens!’
Armed with an EMF meter hoping to find evidence there was nothing registering.
It feels cool, gleaming ,reflective mirror glass sides are beautiful and stark in the natural surroundings.
It might not be other worldly but it is simply mysterious, magical and a little special .
Edinburgh the happiest city in the UK
A Smart Survey survey revealed that the happiest city in the UK is Edinburgh. The reasons are the quality of life, the high salaries, the average working hours per week and the beauty of the city.
Two seaside towns follow in second and third place: Bournemouth and Brighton.
In fourth place we find Southend and in fifth Bristol. Followed by Colchester and then Glasgow in eighth place.
In ninth place we have both Liverpool and Manchester and in tenth Milton Keynes.
London is in thirteenth place, takes points for the average high salaries but loses some for the many hours of average work per week.
