A team of 8 went over to assist in the brick laying on Platform 2. Here is Roger Brindley's report:-
Section 2 progress is as follows, 2 courses of Blues were laid by Bob.
8 people were on site today, working in glorious sunshine with a 28xx and a class 31 diesel taking it in turns to keep us entertained.
Well over 500 hundred bricks were laid and 50 blocks.
A total of 11 mixes of mortar was provided by Paul .
A full course of Reds were laid behind the second level of Corbelling.
The final level of Corbelling was laid by JC and a course of reds were laid on the back. In order not to disturb the corbelling we decided to leave the remaking course of reds until next week.
The blocking of this section was completed.
A full course of Reds was laid on top of the blocks.
A second course of single Reds was also laid before we ran out of mortar.
Everyone went home happy and satisfied at the progress made.
Thanks to Bob White for the photos from his morning session and very best wishes to his good lady Sue, recovering from an op.
