Saturday was a milestone. We had not one, not two, but three work groups out simultaneously. At Low Cottages the main group had to pull out sufficient service ducting from the drum to feed 9 properties, feed that bundle through a chamber, then through piping because there was a section where it couldn’t be buried. All of this on a very constrained site. So we had Colin and Derek pushing at one end, William and Peter with their heads down a hole pulling and Roger keeping metres of coiled ducting in some sort of order. In the meantime, team 2 - Martin and Pip - were fitting house kits and whilst all this was going on (in that sort of mizzle that isn’t really rain but makes you wet through) over at Low Park David was working with B4RN contractors as team 3. Here they began laying all the ducting from Gatebeck Lane up to Urchinrigg and Low Park itself. In the end it took two and a half days. There is still a day or two's work to get under some walls etc. before we are ready to blow the fibre for Phase 1 of the Low Park Route.
All in all - hard work physically even though little digging - but strangely very satisfying. JPL
