Midford is looking amazing - and much of it is down to Stuart and Tom Seale. Compare these shots with those I took right at the start of restoration in September. I really don't see that restoration of the station buildings will be a long drawn out affair and that things will continue to happen a lot faster than I expected. The best thing about Midford is that it's become a local intiative, but with the support of a bigger organisation. Spetisbury will hopefully be the next project we take on board - and remember that all suggestions for projects are welcomed.
Stuart's report for today - Tom and I were at Midford again today. We cleared more of the bank behind the station and then burned most of last week's and this week's cuttings. We managed to keep warm in the afternoon somehow, even after it got dark. Cooked sausages when the fire died down a bit.
Had a chat with the owner of Station Cottage and other unknown Midford residents who were out walking their dogs and they all appeared to be happy with what is going on.
