Almost ready to go!

The preparations for the build have begun with the transportation of all the harvested materials collected by our volunteers. Over the past week all of the hazel rods, stakes and rafters have been collected from Garston Woods and delivered to site.

The site itself is situated behind the new Stonehenge Visitors Centre and with all of the rain that has fallen in the last few months, we were concerned that it would be too wet to start. Fortunately the underlying geology is chalk and so there is a firm base into which we can drive our stakes. The site may become a bit muddy but we are hoping that it shouldn’t slow down the build. The last bits of infrastructure (portacabin, toilets, fencing etc.) are being set up and then we will be ready to go.
