31st May 2018: with Brockers, Alex, Mike, Nick, Jake and Duncan.
Called in at the farm to collect the mattock retrieved from Hallowe’en last Saturday before meeting the rest of the team in the Wookey Hole car park.
Usual warm trip through Chamber 20 to the dig. There was a little bit more moisture in the cave following some recent rain. At the dig, Brockers digging, Alex and Mike shifting the filled buckets and occasional rocks up to me loading the skip. Nick and Jake hauled the skip up the slope to Duncan, who was managing the spoil dispersal.
The dig is getting ever-deeper and a good-sized team, as tonight, is becoming a necessity for removal of spoil from the bottom. A long bar and a sledge-hammer would be useful for dealing with larger rocks, most of the tools we had here were taken to the dig along the rift and haven’t been returned.
We moved lots of spoil then, we went to the Hunter’s.
