The closest stone circle to Nottingham, was a place in Derbyshire, called Arbor Low.
I remember at the time, that there was a guy called Paul Deveraux, who was king in the dowsing world.LOL.
This is interesting.......How sure a fact, is this Graham?
1) cat, wild-cat
2) cat, tip-cat, cat o' nine tails
In the Mabinogion tales there is a reference to Cath Palug. This was a giant cat.

The word 'Cat' probably has little to do with the English word and is more likely related to the modern Welsh 'Cath' meaning 'battle'.
In Scotland, groups of menhirs are often called cat stones, from Gaelic cath â€˜a battleâ€™.
."cat" also means footpath, track or drove road.

Our group based a lot of our ways on a person I seem to recall as George King. This man produced some kind of battery, which he later discharched for certain purposes. Indeed in latter times, this gentleman was perhaps best forgotten, as there was an awful lot of controversy connected with him.

d - in Welsh a single 'd' is pronounced 'd', just as in English.
dd - in Welsh 'dd' is pronounced as a hard 'th' as in 'this' or 'that'
th - in Welsh 'th' is pronounced as a soft 'th' as in 'thank' or 'myth'
It may be just differences between Scots and Welsh Gaelic that we are looking at here.
Although after a bit more Googling I found this on Wikipedia:The word 'Cat' probably has little to do with the English word and is more likely related to the modern Welsh 'Cath' meaning 'battle'.

There is still this matter of a dog that enters my bed and grips it's teeth into my right wrist. I dare not move, until it fades. This has been explained by another psychic, yet I would welcome any further thoughts on this?
The cat, was quite nasty....but I did whack it, as I could not sleep with it walking on me.
