For out last workday of the Winter season, on the rather inauspicious date of Friday 13th March, the volunteers made the steep trek up to the top of Hunter’s Tor above Lustleigh to help the local commoners by cutting a firebreak to allow them to swale a section of the hill fort. The views from the top were tremendous.
The work was arranged for us by the archaeologist Andy Crabb. We kept him busy helping us with the clearance.
We had a successful day, finishing in time to return to the cars before rain arrived and rounded off with a “debrief” in the pub in Moretonhampstead. Thank you to Andy and to all who fitted in this extra day’s work, braving the dodgy access roads and working so hard to complete an excellent job.
