Pipps Ford Bankside Repairs 2016

The footpath opposite our work site at Pipps Ford had become increasingly dangerous because the old railway sleepers covering a drain between the ditch and the river were broken and had sunk into the ground.

We had recovered a large concrete drainage pipe whilst working on the bridge and this was ideal for creating a proper drain and a safe path.

These pictures show a small team and an expert digger driver making the repairs.

Sadly two of the people in these pictures, John Last, our driver and Les Howard our editor have both passed away. They will be missed.
