Bramble bash at Llanthony Secunda Priory

This task was mostly about clearing brambles in various areas of the site at Llanthony Secunda Priory in Gloucester. Thankfully the weather was dry for most of the day, which allowed us to get a lot done, to the trust’s delight. We also got not one but two bonfires going! Lighting them, especially the first one was a challenge because everything was damped and we didn’t have much dead wood to  burn.

Some of the bramble clearing was critical to allow some archaeological recording to take place.
