Jake and Nick.
Started the session with Vince digging and filling bags, Nick at the ‘T’
Junction, Jake was in the pot; progress was a bit slow. At Jake’s suggestion,
Nick moved along towards the digface and filled bags, while Vince carried on
digging and pushing the spoil backwards to Nick, Jake moved up to the ‘T’
Junction and stockpiled the filled bags there; progress was now rapid. When we
ran out of bags and space to store them it was time to move around and to shift
the bags back to the base of the entrance – all of us doing a shift in the pot!
At the entrance there is a considerable stack of spoil ready to be cleared to
the surface next session but we decided it was time for a well earned pint at
the Hunter’s. An excellent digging session.
