Conservation session at Holt Farm Quarry, Melbury Osmond

A conservation session at Holt Farm Quarry, Melbury Osmond took place on Friday 9th October.

This former quarry used for Forest Marble was overgrown with nettles and the rock face covered in moss. However a couple of hours work made a great difference.
