Wood pile!

James has been working ever so hard at the small holding wood pile!! We have both been chainsawing up branches and small trees that needed to be tidied up and he has then been collecting the logs in Ally and then splitting them with an axe or his chainsaw!!

Finally the corner of the bank is found!!

As well as more slurry pit clearing and tree felling, bench building, BBQing, tent building, and child wrangling we found time to clear the fence and the nettles and brambles from the bank of the slurry pit closest to the tin hut. We took down the wire and post fence and got stuck in with the hedge cutters!!!

We coiled up the barbed wire and the squared wire fencing and put it in the barn along with a bucket of ironworks found in the slurry pit!!
