  • Is this really Liaoning Great Wall?

    I have found this web below.
    But I can not believe that it is real Great Wall in Liaoning.
    Because the wall looks stable and it's east end is connecing the gate of the building which seems to be a factory or anything.

    It goes all the way round the buildings. Might be some kind of military facility and definitely not Great Wall.

      Thanks,Kim.
      I have just deleted it from my GE.
      I'm going to try to find another Great Wall in Liaoning.

        There is some real Great Wall not so far from what you showed here.

          I cannot help myself, but I consider it Great Wall. There are visible (at least possible) watchtowers, at least one of the paths is running along a ridge and looks very much like Great Wall. The fact that a continuation runs along recent buildings does not say much in my opinion.
          I see even a new (and probably much more clear case) north-east.

          For further discussion I named the items.

          chinoook's 1st law: Structurally weak walls tend to have double structures.
          chinoook's 2nd law: Newer walls are built next older walls, not over them.
          chinoook's 3rd law: Similar problems lead to similar solutions.

            11: possible

            a: This wall is new. There is no sign of decay and it correspond with a wall to the north. This is without doubt a kind of enclosure. A wall of the exact same appearance runs along new buildings. It does not look like any Great Wall. The fact that it runs along a ridge does not make it Great Wall.

            1: no tower here

            2: might be a small building but not a tower

            b: part of the wall is at the foot of the hill. The wall is new and part of the same enclosure as a.

            3: a small building but not a tower

            12: possible Great Wall tower

            13: probably natural

            14: probably natural

            A: most likely the real thing This is the way the wall should look like in this area! It continues to the west to from a big loop here - see attached.

            15: probably a beacon tower. This kind seems to be typical in this area.

            16: the base of a mast

              I think we can agree and we together found a new section of Liaoning Great Wall. Great!

              One more tower: 40

                    I think the wall continues according to the attached. That more or less match the map I have of this area.

                    I've already decided to spend some of the October holidy in Xingcheng to visit the Great Wall in this area

                            You approved what? Kim found new location in Liaoning.

                            What is the conclusion ? Where is GPS points ?

                            Sorry, I lost.

                              You should be able to get the GPS points by opening the kmz file in Google Earth and check some coordinates along the paths.
