Guildford Road, Loxwood 2007

These works Started in late November 2007. Ian first visited in February 2005 to discuss various ideas and a sketch was drawn. A couple of years passed before we were asked to complete. There were a few modifications... but basic sketch was as below..

There was a lot of preparation to do. First job was to level the rear and raise the retaining bank of the stream. Initial photos are shown below....

Its now December 20th 2007. Last day of work tomorrow before Christmas. We wont completely finish, but the intention is to be able to get the drive available at least. We will have to drop back and soil up after Christmas and there will be a little tidying and probably a few more bags needed on the river bank.
