Title: Fort Borstal Work Day 27/10/13
Post by: kyn on September 29, 2013, 18:24:59
The next work day at Fort Borstal will be on the 27th October, 10.30-15.30 :)

The plan is to carry on clearing the staircase, I think will take a few visits to complete this!

Another very good workday as we continued clearance of the stairway to the surface. No major injuries to report tho' Kyn was hopping about a bit and swearing a lot at one point for some reason!!

Before we can complete the clearance here there is a huge, and I mean huge lump of concrete in our way which we will have to deal with somehow!!

Ha ha, love that pic of Merc after pulling up the concrete :)

You can see the pics of when we finished last time here: http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=16854.msg144194#msg144194

There had been a few falls since then but this is how it looked when we started today.

Three of these were removed from it all, luckily only one came down the stairs!

I did swear a bit earlier, but only because my wonderful brother decided to roll a chunk of concrete towards me that hit me straight on the shin!!!!  It must have been karma as I was laughing a little earlier cos he got one in his ankle :)

As the day went on we started to see the difference, although there is still so much more earth to shift!  Oh, and the huge concrete boulder!

 :)  I think we all like a bit of hard graft!  Plus when we finish and can see the huge difference we make and it makes it very rewarding, not to mention your cakes.... :)
