The Sluice Gates at Tipkinder which are used to fill the Lake were getting a overhaul this week. Originally made in Crewe works they are generally working well but a few improvements are needed.
The mud mountain near the main road has had bull dozers on it all week levelling it off and creating a slope into coronation walk thankfully the 3 million year old stone has now been removed from the walk into the office before someone through it away thinking it was rubbish
Its been a strange week with on one hand the Butterflies still out enjoying the flowers and what we think of as a winter visitor the Robin seen down by the lake
What is clear is that winter is on its way as Autumn comes to the park with the first trees starting to change colour the trees on the far side of the lake are the first to go. There will be some good pictures in the near future as Autumn colour takes over
