31st August 2106


I was in Wookey Hole with others on Saturday so didn’t make it to Hallowe’en. The rest of the team, however, did and had cleared the sediment that was surrounding some large rock obstructions.

My task this evening was to start the process of removing these inconveniences using some chemical persuasion. It was very pleasant working away drilling the holes, six in total five of which were 400mm depth, charged, stemmed and all brought to a satisfying conclusion. Should be some debris to shift on Saturday although I will bring along the capping gear just in case it’s required.

Up to the Hunter’s to bid farewell to Snablet, Annette and family who are leaving tomorrow after an all too brief visit from New Zealand.
