Read & Research News Restoring the circle | Call for proposals The Ouseburn Farm and Ouseburn Trust have secured funding to restore the stone circle seating area below The Cumberland Arms. The seats were made by Bridget Jones, David Edwick and Tim Kendall in the year 2000 as Seats with a View, but since then the wooden seats and backrests have disintegrated leaving just the stone supports. We wish to see the seats restored and the stone circle revitalised with something in keeping with the setting, retaining and reusing as much of what is left as possible. The seating must be attractive, but also durable and safe This is an open invitation for proposals and a cost to carry out the work. Full details of the call for proposals are available here (PDF). The closing date for proposals is 12 noon on Friday 11 June.
