Dry stone wall to be restored
PUBLISHED: 16:00 13 June 2011
RESTORING this dry stone wall is important to different people for different reasons.
The wall, along Roman Road in Bleadon is an old boundary for the village and is also vital for the preservation of wildlife.
Members of Avon Wildlife Trust, Keith Pyke from Bleadon and rural skills adviser Tina Bath helped throughout the day to clear away the rubble ready for Phil Smith from the South West Dry Stone Walling Association to carry out the work.
Tina Bath said: “It will take about five or six weeks to complete the wall.
“We have cleared a section of the wall this weekend so the wall can begin to be re-built.
“It was a lovely day and worked out perfectly to just miss the rain at the end of the day.”
