Rebuilding our Roundhouse
It is with great sadness that I must report that our wonderful Iron Age roundhouse was destroyed in a deliberate fire on the 18th November 2012. This is such a blow to us. The roundhouse inspired young people. It was a beautiful organic structure, almost a work of art, created through hundreds of hours of volunteer labour. The roundhouse was used to teach young children about the pre-Roman period of our history in an exciting hands-on way including during our community open day in September last year. The roundhouse was also used for story-telling and as Santa’s grotto in our annual Christmas Trail. It was visited by several thousand children every year and never failed to create a wide eyed reaction as they entered its darkened interior. We hope to rebuild this wonderful, unique resource in the future and if anyone would like to donate their time or money to help achieve this we would be extremely grateful.
