This week Force One bought their amazing suction truck to the bridge to hoover all of the rubble out of the lower chamber of the Leigh Woods abutment and allow them to be inspected thoroughly. The rubble is thought to be backfill, left by the builders of the abutments before they were completed and sealed in 1845. All the rubble removed from the vaults has been sifted for finds - but we have to thank James for his efforts in digging out the east shaft (that's under a manhole on the side of the abutment which looks toward Sea Walls).
Today we met with Olly Rigby, a local author creating a new book about the formation of the Avon Gorge by giants Goram and Ghyston. Olly has comissioned some wonderful illustrations which we're hoping to include in our new exhibition, next to a giant's chair for visitors to sit on!
Our exhibition design team at Cod Steaks are hoping to recreate the rock formations of the gorge with a bridge above so as you read the story, you will actually feel as though you are a giant in the gorge!
