Midford is looking FANTASTIC. We should soon be on stage two which is putting the buildings etc back.
Tom Seale's report for today.
As the weather significantly improved we decided to head down to Midford again today, this time to clear more of the platform.
We made far more progress than I'd anticipated, only a small portion of the platform now remains to be cleared. The tarmac and guttering were again in remarkably good condition despite having been buried. We've also uncovered the base and foundations of the oil store. The concrete base has unfortunately succumed to time and is in need of replacement; however with the foundations unearthed I can start taking some measurements for planning drawings. Should need only one more visit to finish clearing the platform, then its on to moving that pile of rubble off the parcels office.
REMEMBER - all members are welcome to help out in the restoration of Midford!
