    I am currently in Lisbon doing a (tiny) bit of work and then I am going up to my newly acquired bit of land for a (very short) holiday.

    I have just learned that both the wells on the land have run dry!!!

    So not only do I have to clear loads of overgrowth but also have to sort the well(s). Luckily I have great local contacts so I am hoping I don't have to find wandering Funsters and send them down on a piece of rope with a trowel in their hands...

    Thanks for the offer Jim but I have a suspicion where the water is... a few feet down from the bottom of the well! :)

    Maybe see you at Shepton?
