Cork And Culverts
On the two new boards Himself has begun to lay the cork cushion the track will be laid on.
He has also started planning the culvert retaining walls where the stream pops under from the big embankment with the aid of some of hundreds of research pictures we have taken over the years around the Beddgelert area.
The model of the culvert is made using the embossed plastic coarse stone sheets produced by Wills.
However, to make them look like slate blocks - and I think this is rather ingenious - Himself has sanded them down so all the mortar joints are still clearly visible but there is none of the rough stone texture left.
I think it looks really effective and will be even more so after the Artistic Director has performed his magic with the acrylic paints.
