Holt Farm Quarry

We had a curtailed conservation session at Holt Farm Quarry today due to rain from about midday. Four members of the DIGS group carried out some tidying. It wasn’t in too bad condition, a lot of moss on the rock face plus autumnal leaf fall and fallen branches.
Thanks to the two Geoffs and Giles for helping.

Geoff Pettifer and I also visited Evershot Pit and that is in need of some TLC!

25 April

10.30am DGAG (and DIGS) field trip at Upwey meeting at the entrance to Bayard Dairy Farm where Dorchester Road links in with the new A354. Parking up the hill on the old road. This will link in with the DIGS involvement in the South Dorset Ridgeway Project. We will be visiting a number of former quarries.

Please let DIGS know if you intend to come along.
