Early Dunster Project Autumn Event

September-October 2020

The SANHS Building Recording Group’s Early Dunster Project had been planning to hold a live event in September 2020 to give an update on the project, including a programme of lectures by guest speakers and an exhibition illustrating some the progress and findings of the project to date.

Obviously COVID-19 has impacted our plan, but undeterred, we will now be staging it as an On-Line event during September and October.

**NEW ** The slides from Dr. Nat Alcock’s excellent webinar on Cruck Building: England, Wales and the West Country are available to view here. You can also click here to read a reflection on the webinar by Dr. Lizzie Induni, webinar host and Chair of the SANHS Historic Buildings Committee.

Events are graded from 1-4 in difficulty. The grading is found in the event description in the calendar on this page. Keep in mind that a change in weather conditions can make a walk more difficult than anticipated. All walks and activities demand a basic level of fitness, suitable footwear and waterproof clothing.

1 Easy – generally even ground with a few gentle slopes; no special fitness needed.  Comfortable footwear required.

2 Moderate – for reasonably fit people, may include unsurfaced rural paths and tracks, moderate slopes, uneven surfaces, steps and stiles. Walking shoes/boots required.

3 Strenuous – for fit, experienced walkers, will include hills, uneven surfaces, tracks and may include muddy terrain. Walking boots and waterproof clothing are essential.

4 Confined spaces – including caves and attics. Locations may be dusty, slippery and dark.

Activity leaders carry out a risk assessment beforehand. Participants are required to provide emergency contact details before taking part in an activity – this information is destroyed by the group leader after the activity has taken place.
