Vallis Vale, de la Beche unconformity SSSI

Alan Holiday and a couple of others from the Dorset Group did some conservation work on the de la Beche site in Vallis Vale, near Frome.

As you can see they did an incredibly good job.
Alan writes that as they were there there were at least a dozen young people camping. They were curious as to what we were doing and had no idea about the geology or the significance of the site. It seems strange that there is no indication this is an SSSI and its geological importance so people might treat the site with more respect. Needless to say they cleared up a some rubbish.
Those of us who use the site are indebted to them; thank you all!
