Just a few shots from this weekend's operating session (the one which preceded the alfresco evening meal)

Wonderful video (again) Rik, everything has established itself in a perfect setting, plants and structures alike.
Good to see the gunpowder van correctly sited in its train.
The best things in life are free.... so why am I doing this?

Very atmosheric and enjoyable viewing. I'll bet it gave you even more pleasure especially given the the lovely weather we had.

I like the stream of water; I attempted unsuccessfully to make one in the past. What is the power of your pump?

I've been asked this a few times - and I keep forgetting the answer. I think it's written on a plate on the pump but it's not easily accessible - inside the plastic dustbin which I use as a sump, covered in cobbles and pebbles. Next time I clean out the sump I'll make a note of the pump's power. I know it's quite powerful. I bought it in a sale - it was reduced from over £70 around ten years ago. Basically, buy the most powerful one you can afford.
