An Epic Turtle: Vitrified prehistoric turtle discovered in the upper reaches of the River Ruel at Dunans

By Dixon-Spain

On Saturday last, intrepid explorers made an extraordinary find in the River Ruel, just yards downstream from Dunans Bridge. On the sun-dappled riverbed, as if basking by a natural pool, the huge stone turtle was discovered by noted playwright and owner of Dunans Castle, Sadie Dixon-Spain. As she was later to remark, it is “an epic turtle”.
