Going Underground



Diplo Jnr's Easter holiday project was to start the well. Every garden should have one. 6' o/d and 4'6" i/d currently 6' deep. The last 4 feet are in solid rock. Sinking the brick liner is a thrill, as you pick away to under-mine the raft the steel cutting edge does its job and the whole chimney sinks gently into the ground. Nice and cool down there. MORE COMMON SENSE !

Now come on Diplo – you can't just throw this venture away with three pictures and a few words. Is any other schoolboy currently engaged in digging a well for a laugh, through solid rock, using Victorian technology? I suspect not.
This should be in the news.

Are you sure this is not your interpretation of a 'Wall of Death'. Shape's right!
