Just me and Tav this week the other team members are either away surfing or at Glastonbury partying!

Continued to dig the rift to the north of Witches Cauldron. Pretty easy digging at the moment dry sandy silt with very few inclusions. The layering visible within the sediment exposure might suggest a low energy environment at the time of deposition. I did the first stint filling 15 bags then changed places with Tav who then filled another 15 bags. Alex turned up to help out with the hauling and the bags were quickly up and out. The bags were relatively easy to empty and by the time the last bag was out the others were already emptied and hanging up to dry. Off to the jolly old Hunter’s Lodge for some refreshment!
