Last weekend we travelled down to Dorset , and went to see another barrow under constuction. This barrow is being built by Joanna Vassie who has the Higher Ground Meadow natural burial ground. It was a pleasure to meet with Jo, and we had a tour around the barrow, which is quite impressive and has almost 1000 niches !
It is constructed from Purbeck stone and is built in a shape resembling a clock face. As we have done with the other 3 barrows, we took a piece of Horton quarry stone from our facade and swapped it with a piece of purbeck stone, which we have placed inside our barrow.
We have now just completed the stonework on our build, but we wish Jo well on hers, and hope to see the finished barrow in due course.
