The demolition of the centre platform at Honeybourne is now well under way and the transfer of materials to Broadway has started in earnest. I hope this first consignment are representative of all the bricks - the old ash mortar has disintegrated nicely, making reclamation that much easier.
Andy and Rod (Driving)
Here Rod and Andy set off to bring the first batch from Childswickham Road back onto site. As predicted the bricks are are mixture of red, blue and brindles, but we will put them all to good use in Platform 1A.
Bricks in store
The lamp hut from Ascott under Wychbold should be arriving on site on Monday or Tuesday next. We have made a very impressive Helli-pad for it to land on so I hope it travels well and doesn't arrive as a heap of scrap iron!
Finally Ray, suffering withdrawal symtoms from lack of bricklaying, set to with the strimmer along the embankment of platform 1a, and very fine it looks too.
Post Script : Robin Elliott, in between medical procedures, joined us for the day on brick cleaning duties. Having sent them off from Wisley on Wednesday he was cleaning them on Saturday. Dedication I think!
