A reminder of what this area was like when we started :)

What a rewarding day!  Well done everyone, we have finally cleared the staircase!  We just have a couple of steps up the top to do and it is back in use again :)

We got the stairs cleared today - at long last!  :)
Good work! The other end of the fort is progressing nicely too.

It'll be good to get back to work on the stairs, when we do :)

I remember seeing them when we first started and wondering how we'd ever get them clear... But we will get there eventually now the big block is out :)

Sunshine and showers forecast for Sunday...

No Chris this week :(

Still, we can get back on that staircase unless the owner has other ideas :)

And the rock is out!!!
robbery21 and I were up there on Wednesday and saw the digger had been along the railway track and that a big lump of concrete seemed to have appeared in a new location.

There's real progress being made on lots of fronts. I'll be up there again today, so I'm hoping the rain holds off. Hopefully we can get a load more done on Sunday.

You mean to say that poor dog did ALL the hard work and dragged that rock out on his own  :) :) or did Billy the goat help ?

 No, I know it's been a real job and I'm pleased it's out now.
Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life tryi

I nearly said it was your birthday present :)

It is brilliant news, and the top step has been uncovered.  Hopefully I will be sent a pic later which I will post!
