We took guided 6 tours from the Museum HQ to the temple site. The tours were guided by Tony and Grahame who were able to talk to visitors about the site in general and also their excavations in the 1970s and 1980s. The visitors posed lots of interesting questions that the guides did a great job of answering.
Because the Museum was based at Northney Farm, we were able to make use of the farm’s special “people trailer” which can seat up to 30 people and has a roof so that the tours could go ahead even during the rain showers we experienced.
The Wilson family from Stoke Fruit Farm very kindly let us take the tractor right into the pea field. The trailer was able to stop within the temple compound between the Cella and the main entrance to the temple.
Many thanks to Tim Pike and Chris Mansell for driving the tractor and Jacko (Paul Jackson) for marshalling the tours so that nobody missed their trip and everyone got on and off safely.
