Carrant Clearout

In the lull before harvest, which will be late this year, due to the cool weather, Derek and Gordon set to to remove a couple of willow trees that had taken root in the Carrent Brook. The trees were trimmed earlier in the year by the electric board, as they were growing towards their cables, but left the hard job of removing the stumps to the experts! The digger freed the roots whilst the tractor applied about 200hp of pressure and eventually the trees gave up, luckily before the digger slid into the brook!
