Latest Lapstone update

Welcome to our latest Lapstone update

Several members of NDHAG returned to the site at Lapstone for another look, and to clear and measure the exact size of the building.

After several hours work the footing was cleared and could be measured, this included the location of the door.

Several other artefacts were uncovered in the process of clearing the footings including what appears to be a child’s broken pink tea cup.

These can be seen at the workshop, along with the other finds which includes a broken Champion Vinegar bottle, and broken soft drink bottles.

 We are still are assuming that this structure was the same size as the pointsman’s hut in the following picture.

It is nearly October and the railway buildings expert will have a look at the site, we should then have an answer to what this building was
