Another day + another pile of aggregate = another wheelbarrowfest
by: Ian Moody
Here is the obligatory “before” picture. The sharp-eyed amongst you will clearly be able to see that it is a distinctly different 16 tonne pile of Type 1 when compared with Tuesday’s 16 tonne pile of Type 1 (I wonder if there is a website somewhere that just features photographs of aggregate).
[Of course there is: https://www.shutterstock.com/search/aggregate ed. ]Anyway, it seems that if you pile it up, they will come. We came, we shovelled, we barrowed, we smiled, we sweated, we laughed, we ate doughnuts and we definitely wished it was a little cooler.
At one point we were rudely interrupted by a badelynge of ducks but it turned out they were just moving from the relaxation of the canal to the excitement of the river.
