With Alex, Tav and Jake.

With a good team assembled priority was to set about removing the pile of debris accumulated at the nether regions of the dig, the first task was to clear the spoil from the bottom of Witches Cauldron before clearing T junction. While the initial clearance was taking place I set about work with hammer and chisel to bring down the loose debris in the T junction after last weekends enlargement process and managed to drop a rather large flake of dolomitic conglomerate onto my knee and leg. Eventually a large quantity of spoil was removed to the surface, but not everything as there is still some gravel remaining, but there is space enough for the next phase of enlargement work to continue, concentrating for the moment on the roof. Marvellous!
