Big stones - (08/04)

With the original United Utilities storm pipe decommissioned and removed the excavation is now able to proceed as planned - done in conjunction with our archaeologists to ensure that everything that is found is known, understood and recorded

The concrete 'shuttering' that will house the Archimedes screw will start to be installed (weather permitting) in the next 2 weeks which will then give the site a different somewhat cleaner look compared to the current 'muddy hole' that currently exists.

During last weeks excavations some of the original Torr Mill wheel housing has been discovered and safely removed and may possibly be used in some some form of display once the project is completed - the size and craftsmanship that went into these is remarkable compared to today's concrete and steel 'quick builds'.
