Our determined efforts to keep the momentum going on Platform 2 took another great step forward today. Here is Bob White's report and photos:-
The weather was good today - sun and 8 degrees C.
Roger, Tony, Steve, Paul and Bob W made good progress on Platform 2.
Roger and Bob continued laying the blue bricks and Tony and Steve backing their work up with the reds. Paul kept the mixer going and mortar flowing in between his bonfire duty at the north end of the site.
Two more courses were completed along the second part of the platform this now means that with the varying heights at least five courses have now been completed along it's length and Roger also commenced the first course of corbelling.
At the end of the day we all felt it was a good days effort.
I enclose a selection of pictures from the day.
|Oh Yes - corbelling has started!|
And a quartet from Roger:-
|A Bonfire as well!|
