The WRGies attack Dock Lock
Their one week camp, based at Brimscombe, commenced last weekend. Today, they were in full swing under a strong sun working on the south side of the lock chamber.
The main activities were, firstly, the excavations necessary to create a new spill weir. This involves preparing the earth works ready for the weir construct and a pipe that will run along side the lock to the bottom end. Rain is forecast for tomorrow & so is the concrete!
At the west end, the steps leading up to the top of the lock were being diverted around the quadrant so that you don't end up walking into the balance beam when the gates are open. The WRGies team is supplemented with Duke of Edinburgh Awards students.
Much to do before end of camp Friday
