A small band of scrub clearers did a great job over the weekend clearing the site ready for digging next weekend.
One bit of news is that the structure could be connected to the cheese making industry in Maiden Newton. Whey was pumped up to the pigs, we have been told, and this could be the old pumping station. If so this is a forgotten part of an important employer in the village and we are putting it back on the map, especially as the factory is long gone, as are so many other places of work in the area. More information to follow.
