The ongoing work by Doncaster Council’s contractor to take down and rebuild the damaged western boundary wall is entering its final few weeks. Down near the southern end of New Street is one of the sections of wall that had been severely displaced by tree roots growing hard up against it. The photo on the left, below, shows the displaced wall partially dismantled, with the tree root pushing it outwards. The other photos show the wall having been fully dismantled and tree root having been jet-washed, prior to chain-sawing it out. The root has now been removed and work has started on rebuilding this section of wall.
