It’s ready to be unwrapped. Is it Christmas?

Blimey that looks a bit scary. The access is a little narrow, but this Telehandler driver seems to know what he is doing.
Like I said it’s a tight squeeze.

It’s finally there. Phew!

Our hot water will be delivered to the main building via some highly insulated underground pipework through this trench.
