Day 20: Saturday 16 Feb 2008

Saturday and this week the hard working lads from Devon Tree Services are having TWO whole days off. And they deserve it, the work they have put in. That means these stumps can stand there with an uninterupted view of the Bay for one extra day.
Look to the right of this tree stump and you can see a big crack in the rock. That is what tree roots do even to the hardest rock if they get enough time.
And in this slab of rock even though the roots are much smaller. If all this work hadn't been done one day a bus would be driving past, and knowing my luck I would be driving it and one of these slabs of rock would have decided to catch a bus and come running down to the road together with a tree. What would I have written on the defect card? Back of bus no longer fixed to front of bus?

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.

If you left click on a photo you get a larger image.

Each day has the label "Day", click on it and you will miss out the other posts.
