February/March 2023 henge clearance
The first photographs show the result of a strimming session on the trackway in preparation for the main clearance event. They demonstrate the huge task ahead given the massive growth of Gorse that has taken place. The main clearance event took place on Saturday 25th February and the conditions speak for themselves. Another session took place on Wednesday 15th that completed the removal of the Gorse and a general tidy-up.
Following the tidy-up Andy Hickie flew his drone over the site and with specialised software created a series of images highlighting various aspects of the site. Thank you Andy, it adds so much more to our understanding and makes all the efforts worthwhile bringing the henge to the public's attention. (Andy's Aerial Archaeology & Photogrammerty Facebook site.)
