santa at midford

This shows real commitment! Stuart and Tom Seale even turned out today for their regular Sunday restoration trip to Midford, in temperatures well below freezing all day. It does help that they can walk to the site but to me it shows enormous dedication and we should all be very grateful for the work they've put in up there. I am hoping (weather permitting) that I can get up there some time over the Xmas/New Year period to see it for myself.
Stuart's report for today - Tom and I spent another day at Midford today for a Santa Special. We cleared more trees over the station and exposed a good portion of the wall onto Old Midford Road. We had a brief chat with the Landlord of the Hope and Anchor during our refreshment break and subsequently removed some of his small weed trees at the end of the car park that were starting to block the view of the station. In the afternoon we warmed up with a bonfire and got rid of all the wood from our last session. Today's cuttings are still on the station buildings awaiting hauling down to the burning area.
