The digging starts!

James and Andy started by setting out the trenches on site (trenches B and C) after discovering that the alignment of the site grid wasn’t quite the same as last year’s. The rest of the team then started de-turfing trench C (40m x 2m) before the ‘big yellow trowel’ arrived to speed up the process.

Unfortunately the digger turned up with a toothed bucket which meant quite a lot of tidying up for the gang- but a chance to get stuck in with their trowels!

The team were also given a run-through of levelling and recording and are now ready to get in to the swing of things despite the heat!
