Successful Sunday – 15th October

The last planned Sunday work day for this year had great results. Several potholes and gulleys were concreted on the approach road. This consumed our stock of sand and cement, including some new donations of cement.

After lunch we split into two groups. One team cleared fallen rock from the river adjacent to Carrs waterfall. The water level was dropped by at least one welly depth. Another team visited Rampgill Burn culvert intending to retrieve the stocks of dressed stone that were leftover from past conservation work. Stocks of stone now safely housed at Carrs Mine.  We also viewed a collapsed culvert wall and retrieved some fallen walling from the burn. Pending longer term repairs, this work will help to prevent more erosion of the silt on the burn side.

 

The day ended with a quick visit to Carrs Mine in order to inspect and prepare the mine for a visit on Monday.
