Nature Conservation Task: Dry Stone Walling
Over previous summers the Oxford Conservation Volunteers have spent many happy hours repairing the drystone wall that borders the entrance to the Deddington Castle site. There’s just one more section to rebuild to complete the project, and that will be the focus of this task. It’s a short section but it needs reconstructing from the ground up in a way that knits neatly into the adjoining wall faces. There should also be other work to do on site besides the wall work.
We’ll provide all the tools and training and no previous experience is needed. Just remember to bring a packed lunch and wear old clothes and stout footwear. Under-18s are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian. You don’t have to tell us that you’re coming – either meet us at one of the minibus pickup points in Oxford:
1) Outside the Lamb and Flag Pub on St. Giles at 9.20am
2) Outside Tesco on Cowley Road at 9.30am
or meet us at the task site itself if you prefer (check the weekly email to find out exactly where we’ll be – sign up for our email list here: http://www.ocv.org.uk/list.php). We’re normally back in Oxford before 5pm.
