In the item entitled, "Tarvin Unsung Heroes: Bryan Evans", that appeared in TarvinOnLine on Tuesday 6th September 2016, you were asked to see if you could find the inscribed glazed stone that gives the year in which the building of the splendid sandstone wall alongside Mount Pleasant on Tarporley Road took place.
