Another very productive Friday

The team have now completed a very careful cleaning and repair of the reservoir level recorder. This piece of equipment was quite badly vandalised when the site was inaccessible to the trust.

Today the team was threading through the new cable for the electrics in the facilities end of the 1870s building. The crane came in handy again (utilised on Wednesday to clear the scrap from the lower floor and lift it up to the mezzanine floor and into the trailer).

This time to suspend the large wooden drum of cable so it could be unrolled and threaded under the metal grills in the 1960s building. It took 5/6 of them to make it happen, wrestle the cable from the drum, and thread it under the floor. Chris R to connect it up to the board in the 1870s building and leave some spare cable as positioning in the future may change.
