Sylvan no more!

Click on the image for a view of what Sproxton Lane REALLY used to look like


Will this be the end of the end of Sproxton Lane as we know it? Will this be the end of the sylvan lane that leads to nowhere and attracts nobody and where time stands still in the land of wait-a-while?

It started with the tree-loppers ...

... then came the earthmovers ...

... who dug drainage channels ...

... followed by the big gun ...

... my favourite, the auto malas (that's Indonesian for 'steamroller').

And that is it until week after next when the bitumen boys will put their seal of approval on it.

Sylvan no more!
