DAVE PLATT Posted 4 March , 2018 Share Posted 4 March , 2018 Hello All, Seeing a lot of activity at the Hawthorne crater this week, which is easy to see with my Bino's from my kitchen. Flashing lights, vehicles, chain saws and branch choppers. So as it warmed a little today had a wander down. Its Sunday and most French are chilling, drinking wine and chatting at a family get together. However, a French chap I know from Beaumont village was collecting logs from this weeks clearances. I was amazed to see how much had been cut back, its the first time you can pretty much see the lip all the way around. Easy to see right through to the other side from any position. A clear definition of 1st July and 13th Nov mine explosions. There is a French association of 5 people from the village working with a British group to clear the area for future and safe visits. A new pathway going up and around with access to the crater floor is planned, which will make it safe to go in. A lot more trees to be cut yet he says but to have the thickets and Hawthorne cut to base is quite a revelation to see. So a few photos for you from today, I will monitor the action and post more as we come to the end of the project. Regards Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
