Survey 4 (14th July)

  Stewart Knight (Turnford - 16th December) 43.4lb. Great end to the year, Stewarts reward for putting in his homework and the time on Lea Pit.   (Turnford Railway - 18th December) Thanks to the Task Force lads who helped clear the tree in swim 6 on Railway today. All the branches we could see or feel under the water have been removed but please be aware that there could still be some hidden obstructions. Hopefully the trunk we've left will prevent people casting too far right.
