Here we ran 800m water pipes 750mm below ground without actually having to dig up the ground. The spinning water pipe feeds into the ground from a leg on the machine and the tractor dictates its direction. All clever stuff.
This is for the same project on Manton Downs as our previous post…
This is an ongoing project running over several months.
Here we show Dave’s video featuring some 3,500m approx of post and stud rail we erected to make the side fence to the racecourse gallops. This took us about 10 days to complete.
We then needed to add a number of 5-bar timber gates and some additional fencing to ensure the horses can be safely secured. You’ll see a couple of the gates we painted white which was in keeping with them being at the side of the gallops.

We are undertaking a large ongoing woodland project near Marlborough, creating new fenced areas to allow grazing within Savernake Forest; this will allow cattle back into the ancient forest to help with its management. The fencing consists of 2 strands of barbed wire and a single strand of plain wire.
