Connecting the point to a resited Ground frame
The area around the point and ground frame cleared for work to start.

Tea-making under better cover
Seen here being completed in January 2014 is our 'Tea Shelter'. This was an improvement on the lightweight gazebo we had to put up every open day, but still had its problems, particularly in windy weather.
We've now ordered a purpose-built shed to replace the above shelter, so we've had to take the old shelter down.
The shed arrives on site end of November. The wires on the right have now been tidied up - they are 12volt cables supplying LED path lighting round the site.
