Wild Camping, Geology, Archaeology and Snow!

Firstly here are some pictures of where we are with the Wild Campsite. We still have a lot to do but they are taking shape. The next big job is to get the roofs on. A group from the Perse School have then agreed to help start the next stage in March. The next stage being building the toilet, grassing the roof and making the fire pit.

Geology, Archaeology

We went to a really interesting talk on the Archaeology and Geology of Wicken and Upware at the Wicken Village hall on Saturday. I had no idea that there was so much interesting stuff at Dimmocks Cote Quarry. Bronze Age burials, houses, a barrow, a possible religious building, and learned plenty about the geology of the area. Including finding out that the fossils we found in the Burwell Bund borrow pit are Bivalves and over 100,000,000 years old!

Finally The Snow

Here are some pictures from Sunday. Check out the 8ft tall snowman at the Wicken Visitor Centre and the other ones next to the door and at Upware.
