It’s not very often you see the Statue of Liberty in Somerset ( in fact never). But Wells Reclamation Yard has everything including many kitchen sinks , and a tank and a rocket launcher !

Mark and I visited this dream of a place last week to buy old wood to make a backdrop for me to use in my Be Still class.  We were spoilt for choice, so many treasures to explore.

The quirky up against the valuable this family run business is an Aladdin’s cave.

We will definitely return there are some wooden block letters I have my eye on and some wooden crates as well.

As you can see Mark entered into the challenge, the wood was very old taken out of a Romanian brewery we believe.

The backdrop is so heavy we have decided to go back for more to make a smaller one , well who could resist…..
