Dursley News - May 2018

The sun shone throughout much of May and the bluebells were in full bloom in the woods and on the local hillsides. The Kingshill Inn is now under new ownership and work has begun clearing the car park area and refurbishing the building. As a result of the clearance work a small round tower has been revealed after many years of concealment by extensive undergrowth.
