At the beginning of March we noticed hyacinth flourishing at the inlet of the top dam. It had to come out!!
The boat bringing in a load while the weed is thrown onto plastic sheeting
Alan's big fork worked well
Lunchtime and it is looking much better
Hurrah! All gone!!
And that is what we took out!!
Peter at work. In the lane, a trench on the left was dug revealing five springs
Under the walling is a 6m x10cm pipe draining the water to the other side.
A second pipe was put in further down the lane where there were a couple more springs
It should dry out now and hopefully we can walk through with dry feet!
