Re: WE ARE WHAT WE EAT

Good news that Tom Watson the Deputy Labour Leader, having lost over 7 stones by cutting carbs and eating more fat, has come out fighting!

My mum didn't get Women's Weekly but a neighbour did and would pass on a few weeks worth at once. I would get to read them if I was off school for any reason.

Re: THE FLATLEY DRYER

I have two wooden mushrooms, and actually darned the heel of a sock just a couple of years ago. I didn't choose to do it, a lot of pressure was applied by the owner of the sock, he said he would do it himself! :laugh5:

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

They will be back today bringing the pressure vessel and switch. Col made a concrete base in the corner of the barn where it will be sited. He has already brought wiring through and established where the water connection will be made. Our pump should arrive midweek, and Col needs to complete his tre...

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

Completely different geology to next door where they came across gritstone quite early on. There is an old quarry just up the hill in the field behind us as well. How weird. The waste that comes out is directed away in a large pipe, in our case it went under a hedge and into the field. There isn't a...

End of the day and an old flannelette sheet wrapped around the well head to prevent the dogs from peeing on the temporary electrical connection.

Seriously effective drilling rig Gloria with only shale/mudstone to drill through. The slow bit is waiting for cement to set.

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

Water!! Loads of it, and it's looking iron free. :smile: They have drilled to 32m, lined with the plastic pipes and filled around them with fine gravel. The water has risen 25m back up the borehole. Their pump is down at about 30m and we need to flush water through for a couple of days. We will only...

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

Shame you didn't get to see the rig in action Stanley!
The big steels are in place and grouted with cement to screen out groundwater. It takes 24 hours at least to set so the guys wont be back now till Monday when they will recommence drilling.

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

Day 1 as I understand it! They drilled down to about 5.5 metres and came across a cavity in the shale which was full of black water that sprayed everywhere. They have sunk steel pipes and drilled on through the cavity to dry shale. Next step is to pour cement in to seal off the water from that cavit...

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

You know sometimes van drivers can't manage to negotiate the bends in our track or even turn round without a struggle. These guys have brought 2 big 8 wheelers in, both loaded up with hefty equipment and parked up exactly where they want them, no trouble.

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

Remarkably quick! The first source they found was full of iron, so they continued down. They reckon that the lining system they use stops unwanted water getting in. It needs a couple of weeks to settle before water testing can be done so it will be a while before we find out how pure it is. When the...

Re: Borehole at Lower Burnt Hilĺ.

They finished drilling next door this morning and found a good source of water at 40m. There are other jobs to do but the rig should be coming here tomorrow.
