The weather was good today and the top course of corbelling was completed by Bob and Clive by lunch time whilst Steve B finished the infilling of cut red bricks to the top course of corbelling carried out last week. The three of us spent the afternoon continuing the backing up of the last two courses of corbelling on the final section of wall. The only outstanding brickwork is the completion of this section of "reds" - approximately 120 bricks.
The end result now looks pretty impressive! Thanks to Bob for the pictures.
Before work can start in in earnest on the next stage of Platform 2, the embankment behind the next section requires levelling and grading. Steve Warren came over with the mini digger to start the task, which should be completed today.
The levelling produces a large amount of spoil and this was removed by tractor trailer to try and reduce the amount of churning up of the of the soft ground.
I will have some more pictures of the finished result on Wednesday.
