'Eureka' we've found it ! - (08/06)

Gently does it as 12 tonnes slowly descends into the Torrs

What a great day - perfect weather, a great turn out by New Mills for the 8:30am start and no screw in sight !

Eventually after finally locating our driver - who had taken a very scenic route to New Mills we started the long awaited lift of the Archimedes screw down towards its new home in the Torrs.

With excellent work by Ainscoughs cranes and Western Renewable Energy a perfect landing was guaranteed - we even made the tea time Granada news !

The crowds gather (again) to watch in anticipation

Tilly wonders 'why so many Bob the Builders ?'
