'Finds' suspended on wool card

“Finds” Suspended on Wool Cords

Tying two heritages together from the Westdown /Ashdown Wood Quarry area.   The artefacts have all been found rusting away during walks in the area of the former quarry – relics of its past history. They are held on wool cords to depict a second element of the areas past and present history and heritage – sheep.
