Rare Van Spotted On Nature Reserve
11:42am 1st July 2013
A rare piece of history has been brought to Dorset.
Dorset Wildlife Trust's nature reserve at Kingcombe Meadows now has a living van.
In the 1950's living vans were towed behind steam engines for road workers to stay in.
The van's been restored by Piddlehinton based hut makers, Plankridge.
Richard Lee, owner of Plankbridge said: "It was a real pleasure for us to restore the rare Victorian roadman's living van for Dorset Wildlife Trust".
Kingcombe meadows will use it for educational purposes and will allow visitors to stay there and have a first hand experience of the living van.
