Sand & Blocks

George compacting the sand base for block paving at East Tanfield
Kevin & Steve fetching blocks; George, Colin & Nigel laying them
The blocks are advancing; Colin is brushing dry sand into the joints
Colin now vibrates the blocks to seat them, as George continues to fill the joints
Kevin supplying blocks
Still advancing
George compacting more sand which Ian has been levelling
The team continue
Nearing the end of laying for today
Ian & Steve are extending a manhole cover so that it will be level with the blocks
Bringing pallets of blocks ready for tomorrow
Steve laying the last for today
Ian digging to enable the blocks to be laid as far as the start of the bay,
from where the original surface will stay
