With some of the farm below sea level, drainage has to be kept in order. In this picture a few new drains have been trenched, some temporary channels cut to aid drainage.

Four years ago a small 360 excavator was bought, surplus soil banks were graded off, and led by trailer into low places.

To speed up the grading work, and complete within the three years I had estimated the work would take, the original excavator was replaced by two larger machines. These 13 tonne machines could really move some muck!

A low-loader was bought to help with moving the machines around the farm

The low-loader was usually towed behind the 155-65 Fastrac

Tim and Arcane,
The farm is located in the East of England. Not the Fens, a bit further North West. :-)

After many hours work, the barrier bank grading was complete.
Work on this job finished in November 2005.
The light sandy silt was pushed out over the heavier soils.
