Guided Walk Reveals Progress In Restoring Shaftesbury’s Breach Common

Shaftesbury residents took a guided tour to witness the rejuvenation of Breach Common yesterday.

They walked down a reopened, sunken holloway and heard why Shaftesbury is blessed with so many of these ancient walking routes. And the group discussed theories about WW1 practice trenches on Breach Common.
