Repairing the Leechwell - May 2015

Back in October 2014, the Leechwell Repair Project led by Shirley Prendergast submitted an application for Scheduled Monument Consent to make repairs to the Leechwell. You can read the application document here.

Archaeologist Oliver Bosence produced the Schedule of Works (see here) describing what needed to be done and funding was provided by Totnes Town Council and the Totnes Trust for this complex and unique piece of work.

The work was done during May 2015. Shirley has written a report about the reapir process which you can read here.

The photo albums below were taken between May 5th and May 11th when Bruce Kirby of Acanthus was repairing the Leechwell.
