Another successful session at Wanderwell LNR on Friday continuing to work on the two faces where Forest Marble is exposed.

Some damage to the site was cleared up following it being used as a BMX track!

Some good fossil material can be seen with careful inspection. Here are some pictures to show it now and as it was in 2008.

Crack Lane

Great morning at Crack Lane yesterday with lovely weather and an energetic work force, mixture of DIGS and Wessex OUGS. Thanks to all who helped.

The walk to St Aldhelm’s Head went well with glorious views!

Steeple Pit Conservation

A rather dreary morning at Steeple Pit today but four members of the DIGS group spent three hours tidying up the site in Purbeck.

It has been rather neglected recently and was in need of some TLC. Plenty of dumped rubbish was also removed.

Some progress made after 3 hours
