DW&LCT AND SOMERSET LIBRARIES SERVICE SET UP AN ACADEMIC RESOURCE IN DULVERTON LIBRARY

Dulverton Weir and Leat Conservation Trust and Somerset Libraries Service are pleased to announce that Dulverton Library is to become an Academic Associate of the Trust in its project to save Dulverton’s medieval Urban Watermill Landscape (weir & mill leat).

An academic resource section covering many aspects of the project is now available to be perused by users of the library on: Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays 10am–1pm and 1.30-4pm and on Saturdays 10am-12.30pm.

Philip Hull, Trustee of DWLCT, says: “A significant amount of academic research has been done on the medieval weir and leat by the Trust, its partners and academic associates. This research will continue in the future and much of this is available on our website at www.dulvertonweir.org.uk. But we wanted to present the research in written form in a suitable location. Our research is continuing and we look forward to sharing it on the internet and with Dulverton Library.”

Sara Long Library Supervisor, West Somerset Libraries, Somerset Libraries Service, says: “We are delighted to be offering the community this additional service to show a new insight into the historic weir and leat. We hope local people will take this opportunity to use this hands-on resource, which is particularly aimed at those without access to the internet.”
