Obituary: Keith Jones

It is with great sadness that I recently found out that Keith Jones, a major contributor to this site and friend, died in March 2016.

We first met when Keith was given my email by someone I had corresponded with about sheelas and got in touch. We had a chat on the phone and found out that we only lived a few miles from each other. This was the beginning of a long partnership, going on trips around Britain chasing up leads on figures most of which came from Keith reading obscure books and journals. Keith’s enthusiasm for sheelas and green men was unbounded. He is responsible for many of the pages on this site and without his help and encouragement I doubt the site would be half the size it is today. He leaves behind many happy memories, driving slowly down a road in Shropshire surrounded by a large flock of young pheasant, being filmed searching for sheela na gigs and a truly excellent few days being taken round some Irish sheelas by Gabriel Cannon. He was also an avid caver and ornithologist.

New Maps and a Directions Button

Over the coming days each figure page on the site will be updated with a location map and directions button.
If you are viewing the site from a smart phone clicking on the button should take you to google maps and plot directions from your current location.
If you are visiting a sheela this will hopefully help you find the figure.

The Kilpeck map and button is shown below as an example.
