On Tuesday SDC Volunteers welcomed the sunshine and continued work on Brewery Wall. We’ve started to reinstate the fence, reusing as much of the original fencing as we can. A couple of the sections are not repairable so they will have to be replaced with new. The lower ledge is shaping up nicely with the front stones all in place. Once the end stones are done we’ll cast a concrete slab and then turn our attention to the troublesome “bit at the end”, where the ledge slopes down and fizzles out rather than coming to a nice defined end.
Jon led a small team at Ryeford, installing towpath edge boards on the ramp up from the bridge and also investigating the spill weir at Ryeford Double Lock.
