With Tav, we were joined later by Nick.

Another Sunday session after our jaunt over to Winford Redding Pits (see also mendipmines blog)yesterday.

Tav and I were all set to fill 40 bags and Tav’s turn to dig, we were already underway when Nick made a late arrival. Nick went into the pot to help Tav while I continued to haul and shuttle the bags to the entrance. Made a trip out to the surface to collect another 20 bags for the digger. We got 60 bags filled and emptied before pub time. The rain didn’t let up all morning and at times the drip down the entrance was a continuous stream, needless to say I was rather damp in my cotton overalls.
