Events: Archaeological walk with Chris Tripp to the Hell Stone - Sunday 16th October 2011

The Portesham Hell Stone
This Sunday 16th October 2011, join Archaeologist, Chris Tripp on his walk to visit the Neolithic sites of the Hell Stone and Hampton Stone Circle.  Meet 10.00am at Abbotsbury (near the shops and old school) and we can then car share up to the layby where the path starts for the site. However be prepared to dress appropriately for this Autumn walk, as it may be muddy in places and potentially penetrating cold wind.  For more information contact Chris via Telephone: 07768695162  or visit his blog  xcavate.blogspot.com
  • Chris Tripp has a degree in archaeology from the Institute of Archaeology, University College London and an MA in Managing Archaeological Sites and Public Archaeology.
