Ahh, the Midlands damp is obviously more efficient than Northwest damp, these are a couple of the stones I was angle-grinding just back at the beginning of September this year! :lol:

That is a nice shot of your train, BTW.

That skew bridge cut from breeze block is superb. It will look the business with the stream running underneath. Most impressive.

It doesn't take long, does it? If the sun's out, that wall has the benefit of full UVa and UVb radiation in the afternoon. Maybe that helps control the algal growth?
Thanks ofr the compliment re. th train. It belongs to one of the visitors to my line, travelled down from the Ingleton Mountain Railway, IIRC.

I just had to larf a few minutes ago!!!
Just having a passsing look around the garden, seeing how many bulbs were coming up, etc, and something caught my eye, the stream sump dustbin seemed a bit higher in the ground than when I last went near it. "Oh good" I thought, "the rain has settled the soil round it so I can top it up a bit.". Then I realised that there wasn't actually a gap, just the top of the bin about 2" above the surrounding soil level. So I bent down and pressed it down until it stopped, but as soon as I let go it gently bobbed back up again. The rain has filled the bottom of my hole, excavated from the solid clay, and the empty bin is actualy floating in a pond of its own. :lol:

Somebody did ask if I was going to use a liner for the stream....! :!:

:lol: Ah, the joys of clay soil! We have plenty in our garden, but it seems to be broken up enough that it drains... eventually... I hope...

Traffic Pattern? What pattern? Spuds out; grain in, but cattle, sheep and passengers are a lot less predictable.

The delights of living in Northants. That and the inch wide cracks once the sun's been on it for an hour!
