Excavating and surfacing

You may have spotted some long pipes in previous photos and wondered, as I did, where they were going to be used. Here you can see one of them buried in a trench, which was filled in later in the day.

Lots of piles of soil, sand and gravel here as well. And you can see that the paving round the George Fox memorial is complete. This photo shows the paving inside the Meeting House Garden.

While I was away the surface of the Chequer Street end of the site was developed, with the beds for the new trees clearly marked out, and gravel spread around them. Today the gravel was rolled — see the lower picture to the left.
