Wilsden Wall Building Group: October 2013 news

| October 11, 2013 | 0 Comments

By Tony Caunt

Two members of the group have taken on the task of improving the Wilsden Park plinth. As the before and after photographs show, one can see the original unsightly concrete slabs around the flower bed and then the transformation after new Yorkshire stone blocks and capping stone were built around the plinth.

Roland Loppit and Tony Caunt of the WWBG took on the job during August, with the stone very kindly donated by Mr Michael Jowett of Stapper Green and Chris Harney of Bingley Stone, Cullingworth. As the plinth is now looking worse for wear, Wilsden Parish Council is to consider replacing it with a large piece of Yorkshire stone and having “Wilsden Park” engraved in the face.

The group continue to improve the dry stone walling in and around the village, with work undertaken on the footpath from Birchlands Avenue and the walls opposite Windy Grove belonging to the Shay Riding School. Unfortunately, some morons still find it fun to push the top stones off some of the walls which the WWBG have painstakingly rebuilt, requiring the team to go back and rebuild.
