Roadworks at long last

Peter Bullock the waller works on the retaining wall by the station drive under the watchful scrutiny of site supervisor Bobby.

This is a very welcome sight - road works in The Sidings in preparation for the connection of a water supply tomorrow. It has taken us more than six months to get to this stage. Whose daft idea was it to privatise the utilities? Note the rather optimistic distance sign saying 200 yards.

Soon corrected using gaffer tape. There was debate about making it 200mm instead.


Heating engineer Chris doing clever stuff with pipes. The gas boiler is installed and if all goes well we could have heating by Friday.

Meanwhile life goes on on the Settle-Carlisle Railway. Coach drivers have coped with our roadworks with great understanding.
