Old pit says goodbye

We are having the old pit taken down opposite the office. Father built this building in 1971 over the top of the 1950 lean too. 
My child hood at harvest were spent in this building with the two dryers and pits taking in the harvest. Looking forward to not looking out from the house at this building.

Get drains running

Sammy and Davey are getting old tile drains running on the Fen. There's a lot of water about.
