Stoney Littleton Long Barrow being repaired
According to Chris Smith, English Heritage's Assistant Director, conservation work to the ceiling of Stoney Littleton long barrow is being carried out right now. This beautiful site has suffered a long history of small scale but repeated vandalism which led to the ceiling collapse which forced English Heritage to close the access to the barrow. Last year, a trench was made on the site to help scientists design the appropriate programme of repair.
The restoration work will hopefully be completed by the end of January 2000. The barrow will not be filled in but will be restored and full access will be made available.
