The new owners of the site have already started development, with the area surrounding the 502 currently being used to store the construction machinery. Eventually the ground where our unit stands will be built on as well.

We were helped by the mild and (mostly) dry weather, enabling us to get a lot of work done. The primary task today was to begin emptying the storage containers, which will not be coming with us to Burscough.

Near-Empty ContainerSeveral more work parties will take place at Tebay before the unit is moved at the end of February. Details are sent out to all current members. If you want to become involved, join the group!

    Am really pleased that this unit is being saved. Will it be under a roof now?
