Alex made a return to digging at Hallowe’en Rift after several weeks away, unfortunately Tav was working and unable to attend today’s session.

Bitterly cold easterly wind blowing across the field on the walk from the farm to the cave [and on the way back]. We set about clearing the accumulation of spoil [mostly cobbles and boulders] that was stacked in Witches Cauldron. The spoil was hauled up the pot to the bottom of the entrance ready to be removed to the surface at a later date, there is probably a couple of tonnes of material waiting to be shifted from the entrance including some rather large boulders.

Job done, we called in at the Hunter’s for the usual refreshment and discussion.
