Terram Against The Swamp

It’s possible that there will be no surprises left after this project has been blogged to death! However….as the yew tree was revealed, so the extent of the dogwoood root system was revealed…it’s what makes it look so Louisiana swamp! So digging some of it out, and putting root suppressing Terram down, just for under […]


Bike Maintenance Shed Skeleton

For all of our cycling visitors it’s going to be useful to have somewhere to hose down and to fix up bikes that have had a good outing! Here’s the beginnings… Concrete base due in this week, with bike stand, and washing down area with tools at reception incase things have gone a bit wobbly! […]


And Now With Added Ceiling
