Wokefield Common ~ Car park maintenance

This was our third visit to Wokefield to repair the car park. The Wildlife Trust for whom we were doing the work were evidently as keen as us that we complete the task for they had arranged for two deliveries of material (one of which is pictured above) totaling approximately 34 tonnes. On our previous two visits we had used 10 and 20 tonnes respectively.

Would we shift all this material in one day? It was a daunting prospect.

No time to waste!

It's disappearing!

One heap almost gone!

Still looking remarkably happy.

Despite a shower of rain and apart from some finishing touches, job done!

There's even time for a pose!


Thanks to The Conservation Volunteers for the use of their minibus and help with additional tools and to all who joined us for the day, Philip, Peter, Mike, Judith, John, Chris, Cathy, Barry and Alan.
