Follow that wall!

Adrian asks Alistair to excavate some of the silt from the mouth of the canal to see how much of the original wall exists and to look for signs of where boats may have been built and launched.  The ground on which the crane is parked is not very firm and after a while Alistair has to stop excavating since the tracks are sinking quite deeply on one side and there is a danger of the machine ‘bellying out’ and become stuck.

The course of the wall is now much more obvious  and the remains of a mooring post has been uncovered but no clear indications as to whether this area is where the shipyard once was.
