Julian Thomas in 1985 ...

Another fine view from Dr Phillpotts, this time of Julian Thomas planning on his cutting which seems to have been dubbed "Slot City" according to the captions in the Chronicler's album. Good example of the way planning frames sometimes have to be carefully supported in mid air. Doubtless the plumb-bobs were in use to ensure accurate planning on gradients. Looks rather an interesting cutting and that's a seriously large spoil heap ... must have been getting near the season's end if the JCB was on site as well as the dumper truck. Backfilling can't have been far away.
