This is the scene that greeted me today at the wheel pit. What had been maybe 100 tyres has now grown to about 300. I have hoisted about 20 out so far. They will need to be removed before the proper clearance of the pit can start on Monday. My thought is to make them into a barrier by stacking them and then chaining them together at the point where the dumpers are gaining access to the site. What do you think? In the meantime Bernard will report it to SMBC Environmental Health and so will I as Mellor Society.
Some further progress today on clearing the floor of the tunnel.
