Week ending 25th Dec.

Thursday

– in rather difficult conditions a smaller team of seven turned out today.  A further load of blaes was delivered first thing and the first trailer load was spread and rolled on the embankment just after 11.  The task for the day was to bring the blaes to final level along the whole length of the embankment.  The job continued after lunch in worsening conditions and around 3 pm the rather bedraggled stopped with the task achieved.  By this time there had been sleet as well as continual heavy rain.

Elsewhere more levels were pegged on other sections.

A job well done in difficult conditions and another load of blaes used up.
