Wookey Hole, Mendip

20th October: with Jake and Tav.

Well what do you know! Should have brought the camera as all the Hallowe’en decorations were out, there were ghosties, ghoulies, skellies, coffins and things floating in the sump pool. What can you say!

Up at the dig the skip was trimmed to shape, the rope was attached, the slope smoothed over and ready to go. It’s very warm work swinging the mattock, then shovelling the sediment into the skip for removal, keep going until you start to overheat and then swap around. A lot of spoil was shifted and there’s a whole lot more to shift!

The Hunter’s was a welcome stop on the way home.
