Got all I needed to get done and was at the entrance by 18:15 and made my way along to Witches Cauldron sorting the wire out as I went. After some recent heavy rain I noticed there were a few puddles along the way and down in the pot a few drips – well, quite a lot of drips really. I reckon Jake got the best of the digging conditions last Saturday and the next clearing/digging session may be sticky – even squalid if more ran comes. Anyway, I digress, back to the job in hand, drilled 6no. holes into various large boulders and fractured rock. Made sure I used some of the ample supply of tamp material and made my way back out. Job completed by 19:15 and was home in time to watch the highlights of the first days play of the Ashes Edgbaston test match.
