Cobblestones at Broadclyst

by Laura Tunstall – Instructor

We were a small group on the 26th May at Broadclyst for cobblestoning, despite this we managed to repair two large sunken areas to their former glory, dodging a couple of downpours in the morning. The stable yard cobbles of Broadclyst make for tricky building as the stone is so irregular and not like the usual river stones. Apparently the stones were originally brought down from Killerton centuries ago, which lies a few miles north of the house. Despite the difficulty our novices managed a sterling job and land owner Ian was pleased with what was achieved. Thanks to Ian and Sally for allowing us to use their yard for our course. A good day was had by all.

The next course is on the 16th of June, Dry Stone Walling at Bigbury On Sea. The course is fully booked, but we are still taking reserves at this time.
