Arun walk and Heyshott work party

sunset November 20th
Last Sunday I attended a club dig, but didn't find much, a Georgian halfpenny, a 1917 penny, some buttons and a buckle. Plenty of hammered coins were found, but a few of us missed out. 
On Tuesday afternoon we went for a favourite walk along the River Arun at Warningcamp towards Arundel.

Om Wednesday morning I joined Neil and Mark at Heyshott Down for another work party with members of the Murray Downland Trust. More trees and scrub were removed and we now have a very impressive open area which should benefit the Duke of Burgundy butterfly in future years once the Primulas become established.
