Whats Happening ?

Friday July 30th

Adrian casts another block

Thursday July 29th

Trevor drives Adrian to John’s yard, where they help him saw the timbers to the required dimensions to complete cladding the bridge.

Wednesday July 28th

Trevor and Adrian take the load of timber to John Bowden’s yard where he keeps his portable saw and leaves it there in the trailer for the following day when John is available.

They return to Sea lock and continue rebuilding the wharf wall. The shortage of suitable ’facing’ stone is becoming a major problem.

Tuesday July 27th

Adrian, Hilary, Norman and Philip Molyneux take a ‘jolly’ to Devizes. Adrian has arranged to collect some more timber from Alistair at the BW depot on the Caen Hill lock flight to finish decking the bridge at Sea Lock.

Saturday July 24th

Adrian removes the shuttering from the cast block and stresses the top and face surfaces. He then re-assembles the mould ready to cast yet another block!
