Onward and downwards - (05/04)

With the existing mill floor now measured, drawn and photographed excavation continues apace to make a home for our Archimedes screw. A second smaller coffer dam has now been put in place below the weir to protect the site from flooding.

The picture below shows how the excavation has removed the mill floor from earlier in the week, exposing the existing United Utilities pipe.

Here we see a wider picture of the site from the far side of the weir showing both coffer dams in place.

Here a closer view of the lower coffer dam which is to protect the site where the lower end of the screw will be located.
