10th August 2014

With Nick, Tav and Alex.

Change of day from the regular Saturday spot to accommodate Nick’s unavailability yesterday, and because we want a strong team underground. Took 30 bags to the end ready to be filled. Stuffed some cruddy bags into the narrow crack at the base to prevent loose sediment from filling it up and then set about digging at the bottom of the dig, the east side of the dig appears to be undercutting and this is where we concentrated today’s effort. At the moment all we can be certain of is that there is a lot of spoil to be removed, although it doesn’t seem to be gaining any more depth. When the 30 bags were filled we dropped back to get the spoil out to the surface and left plenty of empty bags to be filled next session. Then to the pub!
