Hello, Jo here with an update on our progress so far! This week we started clearing some of the vegetation in the areas we are hoping to excavate. With a couple of setbacks including a large amount of fly-tipping that appeared over the weekend (council have been notified) we have cleared the top of the boiler house chimney and we will start to excavate this on Monday next week.

P1130649The photo above shows Chris Wild and volunteer Gordon Marino looking at the ground level remains of the Boiler house Chimney.

We expect the structure to be similar to the chimney seen in this photo from a site in Burnley (although I’m sure we will not be digging this deep!)

If you would like to come and see what is going on or get involved there will be staff and volunteers on the site from 10am to 3pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays starting this Monday 9th June and running up until the 6th August.

As ever if you would like more information please ring or text me on 07850 310 733!

Looking forward to Monday’s dig!
