In the beginning - (28/03)

At the beginning of March in came the portaloo and site buildings which will hopefully make life 'slightly' more bearable for the team over the coming months working in what is currently a cold and wet New Mills.

The site was then secured and marked out before the heavy machinery was rolled in to start the initial excavations to locate the United Utilities storm waste pipe that needs to be resited prior to the screw being installed.

Below we see the first sod being cut, followed by many more...

and soon afterwards the walls of the old Torr Mill start to appear much to the delight of the archealogist
