A busy day for the volunteers on this project. We had intended to fill in the trench along the line of the pass-by yesterday but the weather left everyone feeling that they just had to go home. So today I left a couple of people to clean up, do the site planning and backfill while the rest of us went on to a new site.
They did a lot more than that. They exposed more sleeper stones from the waggonway and generally seem to have had a whale of a time. In fact the effect was so good we left the trench open instead of backfilling it tonight. So if you want to get along and have a look at what we’ve done, now’s your last chance. All you need to do is walk along the waggonway from the Ring o’ Bells in Silkstone towards the potworks. You can’t miss it. But don’t delay; the site will be backfilled in the middle of next week.
And the new site, what can we say about that? Quite a lot really, but we’ll leave that for tomorrow. .
