A Week on the Estate: Rubble Crushing, Blackcurrant Harvesting & Mortar Munching
Last weekend brought the hot spell to an end with some dramatic thunderstorms which ushered in a week of cooler temperatures and showers. While a British summer is never predictable, this one certainly seems to suit the estate which is brimming with life.
Little Ormsbees Nursery continues to take shape at the old school. Timber works have nearly been completed on the south-facing gable-end. The boundary wall has been fully repaired, ready to keep a few more generations safe at playtime.
James Ford of Ford & Son dropped in to crush some concrete and rubble and sieve a pile of soil in one of our farmyards. This will help with our ongoing renovation works around the estate. We’ll use the crushed rubble to repair our tracks and the soil for any landscaping.
