Despite dire weather forecasts, the team arrived ready for another stint of brick and block laying. We managed to get three barrow loads of mortar mixed and used both on the platform 1 extension, and also the finishing touches to the base of the Platform 2 side of the barrow crossing. By about 12 noon the weather made its intentions very clear, with by now a constant annoying fine drizzle soaking everybody involved. Still, with the time we had we have managed to advance south…wards with the platform extension brickwork,. This has been backed up with a good number of blocks. Andy has cut and laid the bullnose edging at the north end of Platform 2. As the saying goes, ‘Discretion being the better part of valour’, it was decided to give it best and take lunch at around 13 00hrs. Bearing in mind the complete absence of any change in the weather, the decision was made to clean the tools and get off home and hope for an improvement in the weather for Tuesday.
