Heathfield Caravan Park - Wednesday 28 May 2014

This week we began preparing for this year’s Walling Heritage Day on 11 June which we run on behalf of the AONB.  We already have 8 ‘students’ booked and  there will probably be more by the time the event comes around.  

Andrew Harker the owner of Heathfield Caravan Park had kindly agreed to allow access to a wall on his site. The task is to take down a stretch and subsequently rebuild it so that on 11 June  we have one piece at foundation level, a second at first raise and a third close to finishing.  This will give the ‘students’  the opportunity to have hands on experience at all levels of building a wall.

The team this week on a very wet day was Catriona, Chris, Roderick, Roger, Paul and Tony.

The stripping out commences

Ready to start laying the foundations

 Break time is taken out of the rain in the  Heathfield Caravan Park  sports hall (formerly the old smelt mill building)

The poles and lines are inserted

Roger goes shopping for some extra stone

The wall starts to rise up 

So that’s where I left my bike

 At close of play with the three different course levels beginning to appear
