The admin offices are housed in a group of Portacabins at Toddington. The main door faces into the prevailing wind, and as a result it often jams when swollen due to water ingress. In the picture, the B&S team are removing the slabs that gave access to the door. They are going to be repositioned nearer to the camera, so that an awning can be built to shelter the door and visitors from the rain, with a new access from the side facing the camera, away from the wind.
This picture was taken a little later, and shows how the slabs lifted earlier are being relaid to allow access from the side.
At the end of the day - hey presto ! The path is relaid, with a little concrete slope at the end, end the flower pots neatly replaced. You'd never notice that it was any different.
Now to build the awning.
At Winchcombe, a second B&S job was to lay an area of anti slip self adhesive sheeting into the corner of the footbridge.
This was the result a few minutes later - neat, or what?
Does anyone else need a GWR platform lamp post?
Hayles Abbey update.
The site is now fully set up with water bowser and ISO container. We are now awaiting delivery of our first building materials. Once these are on site, construction of the platform can begin. We will keep you posted of progress.
