Wildlife Warriors Restore Dry Stone Walls

Many thanks to Charnwood Borough Council's Environment Officer Tim Adkin for coming along to show the Wildlife Warriors the ancient art of dry stone walling. On this occasion the Warriors group consisted of all age groups from the very young all the way through to those in their 70's.


 A great time was had by all and we were surprised to find just how addictive restoring a dry stone wall can be! Wildlife Warriors events normally come to a close at 3:30 but we still had people keen to lay "just one more stone" at 5pm.

Many thanks to Wildlife Warriors leader Caroline Bowler for organising such an interesting event.   

Boys Brigade Study Archaeology at the Mountsorrel Railway

Mountsorrel Boys Brigade visited the Mountsorrel Railway recently to study and learn about the archaeology of the railway and its surroundings.

They brought metal detectors with them and were able to find and unearth items of interest as well as examine some of the archaeological items discovered at the old Dob Hall ruins.


Thanks go to our volunteer archaeology expert Robert Turlington for leading this visit.
