I took Callum, Pete, and Tarquin for a look around Land of Hope & Glory recounting the story of discovery along the way. It is still less than a year since the breakthrough, time seems to be distorted by the pandemic lockdown. The usual waiting around for photographs but I enjoyed the trip.

After the tour around we joined the digging team and had enough time to collect some rocks to build-up the spoil heap retaining wall. Digging had been productive, “somewhere between 3 and 70 buckets” was reported.

A good evening.
