A day in a grab lorry (3)


Near Esher, (where I was going the following day for the Futurescape exhibition), we stopped to load 26 cubic metres of woodland mulch. John's skill with the grab was very much in evidence as he not only loaded from the main pile of mulch at the yard, but also tidied up bits of mulch which had been strewn about and very neatly packed down the mulch in the lorry to ensure a full load, while avoiding spreading the top layers all over the M25 when we later got up to full speed...

Compared to the morning drive, we had a much easier run back to Newenden, where I got off after 9 interesting hours, with a new perspective on driving, traffic and the London roads network!
