It was only a winter’s tale, but one day in the bleak mid winter, all DPA’s faithful conservation volunteers came to Leeden Hill to clear the holly and the ivy, not to mention gorse, from endangered archaeology. At the end of the day, as it was the season to be jolly, we sent the two Nigels, Steph and Ellie up the hill to deck the tree on top of Sharpitor with lights and tinsel.

The rest of us then followed in their footsteps where we all enjoyed mince pies and mulled wine, kindly provided by Val and Derek.

We were soon walking in the air, but not over the limit, before driving home for Christmas! Have yourselves a merry little Christmas!
