Today the sun shone all day so we set about outdoor tasks. Having fished a bent metal girder out of the river a few days ago we finally managed to move it up to the bridge. A foot at a time we covered the 50m uphill. Once in place it has finally given us the chance to finish the bridge preparations to get it cemented ready for vehicular traffic. That’s easy to say but then we also need loads of large rocks for the bridge as well. Beyond that we carried a load of slate round the back and graded it. Also started some steps up to the main doorways. When it rained last it was like stepping out onto ice. Even the wheelbarrow (Walter) was struggling.
