A leisurely start to the day, the mist was hanging over the tops so we donned thermals and headed up the valley.
We decided to try and finish the retaining wall for the access to the bridge, lots of rock carrying and within 10 mins the thermals were off and we were down to T Shirts for the rest of the day. We managed to finish the wall by just after midday yippee.
Exploration time as we tried to find the source…but to no avail. We did, however find another old barn on our land well and truly hidden from all surrounded by lovely big trees and a cracking view of Mont Rouch.
After a fab picnic lunch by the river we prepared the ramp next to the wall for cementing in the near future. More rock carrying! Enough of rocks and we began to attack more brambles which are a total mare to clear slowly but surely we are getting there but still many more briars to get shot of. Ended the day with a 20 minute challenge of removing a very stubborn tree which was surrounded by metal and well and truly embedded. Now we have a much clearer front of the Bergerie to look at and makes access a great deal easier.
