is all about excursions in the countryside including caving and digging trips, walks and thoughts.

13th April 2017: with Roz, Nick, Tav and Paul Brock.

Happy days! Back to digging and a good team assembled. The usual steady, warm trip up to the end of 20.

Tav and Brocker's took it in turns to dig, me and Nick did the hauling - a joint effort, while Roz emptied the skip and managed the spoil heap. Hauling was made considerably better with the replacement rope donated to the cause by Brockers.

No-one counted the number of bucket loads removed, but there was a good-sized hole at the end the session. The digger's reported that the sediment was becoming more compact and it's not easy to work-out just where the water has gone.

As ever, we'll just keep digging on.
