Clapper Bridge and Well Area
Renovation of both the well and bridge is progressing.
Clapper bridge - the intention is to tidy up the area around the bridge and make space for a memorial bench. Work on the other side is ongoing with the drainage improved and the track to the field covered with gravel. Cardiff volunteers have done sterling work helping to clear the area. Some villagers are already helping. If you would like to help email Julie Lloyd - see Members page for details.
The well - now that the main wall is complete quotes are being obtained to clear the rubbish at the side of the well and build a retaining wall. A path will be laid as well. We tried to lower the level of the water to inspect the structure but as the water table is much higher than in medieval times it filled up again in a couple of hours!
The wood farther up the lane - work is being done on a plan to make the wood safe, clean up failing trees and make it easy to walk through; including access for wheelchairs. The main problem is the cost so every source of grant is currently being explored.
