Week Two of Manor Waste Refurbishment

  |  Published: Feb 3rd 2016
Trench for the boundary
Monday 1 February: A trench is being dug with machinery and by hand.

The work scheduled for week two of the refurbishment of the Manor Waste was scheduled as "subbase". One photo per day gives a flavour of the action.

A stronger subbase will mean that the surface is less likely to be damaged by the wear and tear of daily use.

Work continued in week beginning Monday 1 February

  • Monday 1 February: A trench is being dug with machinery and by hand. This marks the extremety of the Manor Waste. Today's newly dug trench reveals the former level of the pavement. Fortunately, the trench exposes the same delineation between Manor Waste and pavement. The previous refurbishment was completed around the time of Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee in 1977.
  • Tuesday 2 February: As promised, some edging for the new paving of Manor Waste was laid today. It's a good colour to be seen!
  • Wednesday 3 February: Today, work started on the buildings side of the Manor Waste. The rubble is being taken away.
  • Thursday 4 February: The edging was completed at the Dobbins Lane end while the Thursday market continued elsewhere on the Manor Waste.
  • Friday 5 February: Digging out the drainage trench for the newly refurbished Manor Waste.
