29th July

Vince, Jon, Tav, and Jake

Just a team of four again this weekend, spoil will be stashed at the bottom of the entrance to be removed later in the morning.

Down in the deep Soft South, Jon digging, Tav clearing away, Jake shuttling along the NE passage and hauling the spoil up onto the ledge where I was positioned. The bags were removed from the skip-bucket and dragged/manhandled along to the bottom of the entrance. The bags, initially, arrived in batches of four then six became the norm. It was non-stop action when thing got underway. No time for any photographs today.

As usual, digging ceased about midday and the team moved back t clear the spoil from the cave. A total of 92-bags hauled out and emptied on to the spoil heap. It was time to go to the Hunter’s Lodge Inn for refreshments.
