The Grotto Pool Restoration

Before work began on the major part of the restoration, we spent several weeks in February clearing trees that had been clear felled from the base of what was once pool seven, long since drained.

In April we were back once more to replanted the wild daffodils that had become established in the base of the old drained pool.

The full scale restoration began in July this year 2019.

Re-profiling the dam where the large spillway was to be built required many weeks of clearing away temporary repairs dating for about the 1930s and bringing in and laying tons of clay before the job of laying down the stone work.
