Whats Happening ?

Monday March 1st

Adrian gives some of the bridge decking coat a preservative in preparation for laying it on the bridge framework.

Saturday February 28th

Adrian completes the assembly of the hand rail on the other side of the bridge.  He then attaches lifting strops in preparation to craning the bridge into place.

Thursday February 26th

In the morning Adrian and Tony Barnes meet with Lord Clinton, John Wilding and John Banes of Clinton Devon Estates to discuss the proposed permitted footpath along the side of the canal beneath Furzebeam Hill, connecting the Tarka Trail to the section of canal on Torrington Commons.   

A very production conversation takes place.  Issues of health and safety relating to long term management need to be addressed before the proposal can be taken much further but the general principle is well received.

In the afternoon Adrian completes the assembly of one side of the bridge hand rail and is well pleased with the structure.

Wednesday February 25th

Trevor and Adrian clean up and coat in red oxide paint four very heavy steel cups which the Tan pins on the bottom of each gate will eventually sit.
