After a very early start and giving the front fence a second coat, I finally got round to cutting out the riverside drive part of the loop roadway today.
Despite the strong winds and the odd shower this afternoon, I think it’s a good start. I need to do a second cut on the right as you see it; to widen it just a little, but pretty happy with the shape.
Looking forward now to landscaping this area of the site as the ideas are bubbling away – lots of soil to play with!! 🙂
Riverside Drive – First cut
As the land has dried enough for me to get around comfortably on the JCB, I’ve managed to dig a little more out for the new roadway. It forms a large horseshoe loop around the top half of the side surrounding the ‘to-be’ pond and old cress bed.
Viewing west towards the top field.
Viewing east along the river
The top part of the loop sweeps along side the river through a couple of pine trees and passed the bee hive. I really like this section of the site; it’s out of the wind mostly and you can occasionally hear kingfishers flying past. We found whilst clearing this section a few grass snakes too, docile and friendly mind you!
