Week ending 8th April

Thursday

 -a start was made today on digging out soft material from the east curve of the circuit A, B double trackbed and spreading blaes to replace it; while the digger was working there the opportunity was taken to remove roots which had been pulled out and moved to the side of the route some time ago.

During the afternoon the unsightly pile of metal scrap and rubbish, mainly recovered from the east of the wood last year, was removed in three trailer trips to the dump.  Down to the west the fitting of edge boards and preparatory work was done for the laying of further concrete sleeper edgings.

A quieter day today with only 8 people out.
