    Personally.... I think you will need to wait & see what us volunteers done on Sunday after I took that photo.....we were assisting the company gang after they left off late on Friday, that was a temporary joint for ECS & our RRV to be able to carry on taking out the next 2 panels, ready for putting down more concretes & expansion joint.....photos may follow ?

    Unless I've missed it within all the party political broadcasts and my #### is bigger than yours etc comments, it appears the agreement with 44422 has ended somewhat prematurely and it's returned to Churnet Valley.

    Pretty sure the termination of the agreement was announced months and months ago. The "news" is that it is now known that it is going back to the CVR (and indeed it now has).

    YES! I am continually amazed at the enormous Volunteer effort expended on the WSR in this & all the other areas.

    I was a couple of miles from Huntworth where it was centred. The sound was a bit like a muffled explosion rather than a full-on quake. The windows rattled a bit but that was it.
