The Wessex Astrum - Sacred Geometry in a Mystical Landscape a book by Peter Knight, reveals that a sacred ley line goes through Yate.

 Ley lines are said to be lines of spiritual energy which join up sacred places, and sometimes make symbolic shapes.

Peter Knight and his fellow researchers discovered an ancient hexagram which is two triangles overlaid to form a star shape, which is over 50 miles long. One of the lines, which runs between Glastonbury and Avebury is part of the famous St. Micheal line, and one of the lines involves Stonehenge and the mystical Preseli mountains. The book tells of new megaliths discovered, holy sites, Knights Templars, dragon symbolism in churches and much more. Three of Wiltshire's white horses gallop along the line, and in recent years there have been several hexagram crop formations found.

One of the lines of the hexagram passes through Yate, passing St. Mary's church, and carrying on past three churches south west. On old maps Goose Green Farm (grid ref. 714837) stands where the line comes in from the north. The book claims that both Kingsgate Park and Stanshaws Court Hotel are sites of paranormal activity. The line crosses Westerleigh common on the east edge, and goes by the Grace Evangelical Church in Westerleigh.
