Having excavated the Platform 2 trench yesterday, today was the day for carrying out the concrete fill. Although this seem pretty mechanical and straightforward, raking and tamping to the final level is backbreaking work. Thanks go to Jo Roesen and Tony Boucher, who attended all day to help Steve and co.!
The job was finished after lunch and looks pretty spectacular.
There was time also to put some of the broken bricks from Ashchurch behind the 2A wall. Here Tony steers to load in over the top of John Crawford, who's hard hat seem to be missing again.
Terry and Paul managed 2 lorry loads of bricks and rubble from Ashchurch. Here the pallets are unloaded in front of Platform 1A. Having started at 7:30 in the morning, some sort of medal is in order I think.
