Splitting logs in the wood yard, Quarry Bank, Styal on Sunday 15th Oct 2017

Ten of us met at Quarry Bank today to find that we were working in the wood yard splitting logs to make firewood which would eventually be sold, mainly to the tenants on the Styal estate.
We were also cutting down hazel rods to be used a bean poles as well as for hedge laying.
Hard at work!
The wood was split manually with axes and with a tractor mounted hydraulic log splitter with such a good turnout that we soon made quite a large pile in the wood store. This wood will be left to dry out and season for a year or two, before it is sold.
...... a job well done:-)
The weather was nice, warm and sunny, which certainly helped the day go so well.
