Work in progress...

Short delay, on a run out with the trailer to the farm store to collect 600kg bag of sweetening lime for the season. The day the shoplet got blown over...

But don't fret egg seekers, second born son and I employed some time tested 'leverage with wooden poles' techniques to right it.
Could now apprentice him out for 'henge' construction duties...

There was a generous amount of potential firewood strewn upon the road; a 'proper' thrifty type would have gathered  and added it to the load.
Here in his JCB, the 'Parish Lengthsman' (he should really sport a smock; and port a proper  'Devon Shovel' with a title like that)

Detailed to clear the ditches either side of the lane, to aid drainage. This particular back road runs through an area of old 'wet' woodland. A rare and valuable habitat niche. This route can be  hazardous in the Winter even in this relatively balmy county.

Nights of hard frost, and little direct sunlight to thaw it, means the roads can accumulate treacherous patches of rime. So making haste slowly is the best approach here.....
