Hands on Heritage team returns to the Avalon Marshes
For the first time in 2015 the Hands on Heritage returned to continue the tireless efforts towards the reproduction elements of this project. A wonderfully dry day to come back too, there were many different activities taking place including work on the reproduction Meare Heath track, canoes and planning for the Romano building. Going to be a great year at the Avalon Marshes Centre.
The replica Roman building base keeping dry for the hypocaust build.
Pedalis (tiles) for the hypocaust ready to be to create pilea stacks.
Foundations, (well the beginning of), for the Anglo Saxon hall
Not quite a Roman building site.
Meare Heath track planks drying in the sun.
Wouldn’t be Hands on Heritage without a bit of axe art.
Preparing the posts.
Lovely warmth in the roundhouse
Making an outrigger for the beech canoe.
Time to pull out the 1st oak canoe
Needs bailing out first.
We get a lot of interest from a variety of audiences about our Hands on Heritage Wednesday activities.
Richard oversees the work.
See how much has been bailed out by the change of position in the water.
The Bulleid and Gray Hut to be open for the HoH Behind the scenes tours.
Everyone hard at work
