Work begins on the bluebell ridge

Creating the bluebell ridge

Today the focus of activity moved to the north east corner of the site, where you can see the digger spreading some soil in a circular arc on the other side of the plane tree. After distributing the soil from a pile, the digger gave it a series of strong 'backhand' thumps to pack it down. Again the floor shook.

I walked round at the end of the day — I'll add a close-up photo another time, when there's more light — to see what was going on. The arc is shown on my printed map as "bluebell ridge (springtime)". I wonder if they will plant the flowers in time for this spring?

In the bottom left of the picture you can see the memorial stone for George Fox, one of the founders of the Society of Friends.
