PHOTO: Oldest wall in Combe Martin is pulled down
PART of Combe Martin's oldest wall has been pulled down and is being rebuilt – with breeze blocks.
The top half of the wall, which dates from the 11th century, fell down at the end of January.
And the wall's owners, Monica and Gary Rice, who live at the Pilgrims, took the decision to have the rest of the cob removed for health and safety reasons.
The Journal reported last month that the wall in Rosea Bridge Lane was in the process of being pulled down and this picture shows it while being rebuilt.

As the lane is regularly used by children going to and from the nearby Sure Start centre and primary school, it was necessary to take the wall down to avoid falling stones causing injuries.
