The Smelt Mill Volunteers had a great day on Sunday 5th March, bingsteads were cleared of stones ready for seeding and a water or air pipe was found plus part of a wall! The site still has many hidden features to unveil. Volunteers will now meet every second Sunday of the month to continue work on the monument including revealing roadways and investigating tubways/tracks and lime mortar work to restore the flue arch.
Visit the groups Facebook page Allen Smelt Mill Events for information, updates and photos.
Summer dates are:
Days start at 10 and end around 4 but people can come in and out for any time during those times -just half an hour can be a great help. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join in or just come a talk and take a look – hope to see you there!
