And this is why, the vegetation growth completely conceals the offside wall which was the target for the week's work
Further up, where we intended to start was slightly less overgrown, but the tree roots were bigger!!
Tiforing begins to remove the tree roots that have grown into the wall - behind the route is FCCs own Eric Singleton, who had joined us on site for a day
The excavation is starting to reach the bottom, although they kept finding more and more 'interesting' stuff. Strangely it included a 1970s plastic toy
At the opposite end to the previous photo, the wall is a lot more derelict and the greenery much more stubborn. Here Tina works to clear our start point for rebuilding
Meanwhile, John 'Hawk' Hawkins clears the top of the wall so that we can safely remove the coping stones, and also get to the tree roots to remove them
