Heavy Gardening at the Wor Barrow

On Friday 2 December a work party of FoA volunteers braved the cold to remove vegetation from both the Wor Barrow and the Bronze Age round barrow immediately to the North of it. Whilst David Blake, the AONB project officer used a chain saw and brush cutter to remove trees and brambles, the other 8 members of the party dragged the wood and brambles over to a bonfire away from the scheduled area. This kept us all fully occupied, and warm, for most of the day. This work will make it possible to do more detailed surveying than has hitherto been carried out on the site and also protect the remaining archaeology from root penetration. This valuable work would simply not be carried out were it not for the FoA project.
