Still planning those fences

Hurdle Hall

Well we are getting there, the plans are coming together (I love it when a plan comes together). But it isn’t as simple as it seems, you can't just whack a fence up any old how. A culvert was put in and another one enlarged, two other fences needed were re-situated, cattle grids put in place, bollard placement and so on. But as I say, it's almost ready. Further to this in the next few weeks we are hoping to get some test holes dug in preparation to dig some ponds during the winter.

Newnham Drove

The bollards are in, finally, but the gates are still there. So you can now cycle, walk and horse ride through unhindered. Hopefully the gates will be removed by Jason, our main contractor, over the next week when he gets a moment from carrying out the slubbing on the Sedge Fen. Also, on a disappointing note, the omega sigh was stolen. It will take a few weeks to get it made sent out and fitted again. They never seem to make two of them alike and the bolts can be a right pain as they go up all wonkey. Something to look forward to there.

Anyhow here is where we are currently:

The plan for tomorrow is to get some picnic benches out and carve some pumpkins for the Halloween event on the fen Saturday.
