Sorry no pictures this week, just a progress report.
Wednesday saw a gang of 6 on site, and a start was made on laying the concrete blocks. About 60 were
laid, which is quite a row. More was also done on the front wall of the old slope area , but
this still proved problematic, and had to be taken down and relaid or
Some back filling was started in the same area, and
hopefully now the novices know what to do progress will be faster next
Two pillars were raised in front of the concrete blocks ready for the facing bricks to go in next week for the first three rows.
I'm sorry there are no pictures this week, so as a consolation prize, here is a historical one by John Diston, taken on 12th October 1963.
Can you guess where it was taken? Any other comments you have about it? (I know where it was, but I'm not giving it away :-) )
Over to you!
