The weather has been a lot better this weekend; dry, bright, and frosty.
An excellent days work on Saturday completed the scrub clearance down to Bridge 13, a mile and a quarter from the Station. Overall it’s taken 3½ days to clear the light scrub, compared to 3 months 4 years ago – when it was awful. This allowed us to make a start north of the Station today, working from Platelayer’s Cottages. A lot of scrub and young trees have been removed from the retaining wall, alongside the river. Hopefully a few more days of work will join up with what we cleared a couple of years ago, up at the retaining wall.
Back at the Station, the painting team have continued applying coats of paint to the metal parts, plus priming and wood preserving some new timber planks for the NER van on the dock. Work on the Palvan door has continued with more filling and adjustments undertaken. More general cleaning up and tidying fallen leaves has also been undertaken.
Finally, 4 kilos of onions left over from War Weekend have been turned into onion marmalade, just to ensure nothing goes to waste!
