Day 11: Thursday 7 Feb 2008

Me, no, no we don't have to wear hard hats to drive a bus. Not yet anyway. I am having a look round the Rock walk site so I can report on the progress of the work. A site engineer from Devon Tree Services and the council official in overall charge are both confident the work will be completed on time and having had a good look round and seen close up the work that has been done I can see no reason to doubt then. We are at the mercy of the weather so if we have gales for the next 6 weeks don't shout at me or them. Climbing up one of the many paths to the top of the cliff. It's a long way up and I kept stopping to take photos, actually it was to try and start my breathing going again.
He's a man happy in his work. The cutters take it turns and there is a friendly competition going on to see who can cut the most trees down.
Symbolic.
All of this walk used to be like the section in the fore ground. No view, overgrown, dark and not nice to walk along. Which was why hardly anyone did. Soon crowds of visitors will be queuing up to stroll round the area.

Notes about the blog. Updated 08 March 2008

Not much is happening at Rock Work now. All the work clearing the trees has been done. A barrier has been erected to prevent rock falls from reaching the road. Now we wait for the geological survey in May to see what can be done to fix the rocks in place.
After that when work starts again later in the year I will post more photos.
Any news items I come across I will post as they appear in the local paper.

Or you can work through the whole blog to find more detail.
