What is happening at Brinksway?

Anyone passing by the Brinksway Caves may have noticed scaffolding has been erected in front of some of the caves, while repairs to the road are carried out.

The Heritage Trust was asked if these caves have ever been surveyed and we were able to ask a man who knew the answers.

The caves have been surveyed and a digital 3D image taken.

The road above is in need of better foundations and three small caves will have to be filled to support it better. These are away from the main row of seven caves, as shown on the picture, which, we are assured, are quite safe.
