A bit of the hard stuff ! - (02/05)

Concrete ready for pouring

...Concrete , not whiskey (although we will be celebrating the arrival of our Archimedes screw in due course).

The last couple of days has seen a remarkable transformation of the site from what was at times a muddy quagmire to a crisp and clean concrete lined bunker (for want of a better description).

Over Thursday and Friday approximately 200 tonnes of concrete was delivered and transported from the mixer, down the wooden chute and man handled into position around the supporting metal frame work to make the base for the Archimedes screw and generator.
Once poured the team have to work quickly to get it into the correct places.

The old and the new - newly layed concrete nestling in Torr Mills foundations
