Saturday 22nd November 2014 - A Quick Report of the Day!

Well that was  a good day! There were 14 of us on site, including Jo, who put his battle weary  camera to good effect, as you will see!

John S on chainsaw duty and Dave B in the distance....
The fencing down the eastern boundary continued, albeit hampered by small tree growing around one of the  original GWR  boundary markers. The tree took a bit of extricating -the chainsaw was needed to complete the job.









JS Rear view....


The chainsaw was also needed to continue the eastern bank clearance. Needless to say the compulsory bonfire was lit to good effect!





Keith and Steve  take a well earned rest....














Bricklaying was continuing at a pace on Platform 2C.


Tony working on the corbelling...


Clive on the northern end of the wall......

All was quiet on the Signal Box today. Here John S and I take stock of what is require next:-

As you can see the front trimmer is in place and the short joists  ready to be fixed and levelled. This will be finished on Wednesday, together with some more brick laying, weather permitting.

Robin and Andrew continued with the brick cleaning.  Julie came along to help Doreen in the Shed. Marguerite had taken a fall at home and was feeling too bruised to come in today - get well Marguerite and we hope to see you next week.

No idea if this is helpful but there is demolition work going on at Bristol Temple Meads which looks like the brick structures on the old GPO conveyor bridge are being removed soon. Unfortunately these are old 1970's brown bricks so their usefulness looks limited. Thought I'd let you know all the same.
