We’re coming to the end of our time at the Limes, we had glorious weather last Saturday, the trench had been extended the previous week and we continued to dig in the area where we had found the dump of pottery, bricks etc. but didn’t find anything exciting. Tony, our metal detectorist did find a 1967 two-shilling piece nearby!
Next Saturday (25th) is our final visit to the Limes to infill, make good and remove our gear from the Sadler’s tack shed. The ponies will be pleased to tuck into all the long grass!
We gave the Sadler’s some money for their preferred charity as a thank you for letting us use their land for a couple of months.
We will then be waiting to hear from the farmer at Maylandsea when we can go onto the field there. We may have to add a day during the week to complete the work in the few weeks we probably have.
Thank you to all those who have come along and helped, and even if you haven’t been able to help your subs have enabled us to buy the right equipment. I’ll keep you posted and am including photos of our ‘tea break’ at the Limes last Saturday, and backfilling.
