The site has had a makeover outside the buildings to get rid of trip hazards and make it accessible for all, including a ramp up to the Roman building. Being located on a worked out peat cutting means that we can’t have lovely grassy areas, so this combination of stone and woodchip surfaces is a practical compromise. Its been a nice surprise to find how large the outside spaces are without our clutter in them, but its a culture shock having to keep them neat and tidy. Good practice for opening in January. The stone is still a bit dusty but if it ever rains again that will wash off and produce a more muted colour.
