Dursley News - May 2017

Good weather for much of the month provided many opportunities for getting outside to view the changing scenery. The Littlecombe site continues to take on new appearances as earth is moved around to make way for new houses and roads. More of the river which flowed under the site in a culvert is also now visible after it was opened up and work nears completion on the block of flats which now occupies the site of the old Victoria Works building.
