Whats Happening ?

2nd August 2009

Alistair begins instructing Adrian on how to operate the grab bucket.  Michael certainly makes it appear very easy but it is physically hard work and requires great concentration.  Eventually and very tentatively Adrian lowers the grab bucket into the lock chamber and removes his first load of mud!  This is a particularly difficult task because the crane operator cannot see the bucket at all once it is in the chamber and this is where experience is all important!
