A neighbour (next door but one) has decided to have the clay soil covered with topsoil. Several very large lorry loads and a 14 tonne digger to handle it. Back garden done (more like a park - about 1/2 acre) they then started on the front garden (about 1/8 acre) and it started raining. Now the contractor has moved onto my next door neighbour's land to clear about two acres of tree roots. I wonder if anyone wants to make a film of Flanders 1914 to 1918, the mud will be there if nothing else. My next door neighbour is a civil engineering contractor, too busy at Peterborough to do it himself.
