With Alex, Tav and Jake.

Last weeks ‘enlargement process’ was very successful and there was plenty of debris to shift, so much that the passage was blocked by some rather large flakes.
Cleared some of the loose before dragging back the flakes and reducing them in size with the lump hammer so they could be placed in the skip, also managed to clear some of the sediment. Can see ahead now and it looks good indeed and the draught was strong again, frustratingly it’s just too snug to get a full view of what lies ahead. Parts of it look caveable though – maybe next session, or the one after! Finally continued with the ‘enlargement process’ before walking back down the hill to the farm satisfied with the effort.
