July - September 2012

A hole has been dug that will house the base of the crane. As it will not be used to lift heavy loads any more, the foundations do not have to be as extensive as they would orignally have been. When the crane is erected the base will have concrete pads poured to hold it.

The base has been needle gunned, primed and painted into black gloss.

The internal mechanisms are extremely damaged and are being extensively overhaulled.
