LOCAL EXCAVATION IN FIRS FIELD -
The Combe Down stone quarries have all but vanished following the stabilisation project. All there is now, just visible in the grass of Firs Field, is a stone circle marking the site of a protective light shaft wall that was removed sometime around 1950. This was well after the quarries had been worked out and the shaft itself had been closed.
A project to excavate and restore this stone circle was initiated by the local Heritage Society in 2009 and is now widely supported by Combe Down Stone Legacy Trust, the Heritage Society and Combe Down community groups, such as Friends of Firs Field. Various departments within B&NES have also given encouragement.
If you would like to be part of the excavation team, the very first stage in this project scheduled for this coming summer, please sign up to our Newsletter by sending us your name, contact phone number and email address to
Experience is not necessary; there will be experts on hand to advise and collate whatever we uncover.
When we have uncovered and can see what is there, there will be professional conservators to protect this historically significant and integral part of Bath’s Heritage.
Do come and join in, or come and watch the excavation progress.
